Hi,

I need to tidy up my companies account codes within their ERP system. Current format is SUPPLIERA, SUPPLIERB, SUPPLIERC etc. what i've been asked to do is concatenate them to SUPP001, SUPP002, SUPP003 and with any new ones taking the next incremental number.

Is there such a script that will look at a particular field, take an instructed number of characters, then add a number at the end of the record?

edit: moved to proper forum
