    I think I know the answer to this, that it is ok to do.  But, just to be sure . . . 

    Several years ago a separate GP database was created to process our drop-ship business.  When the new company was set up, the default invoice prefix was SMINV instead of INV.  And for returns SMRTN instead of RTN.  For payments, they did not do this.  For both companies, payments are PYMNT.  It has never been an issue.  But for want I am doing to archive PDF backup, it is now.  If I edit the screen that says your next payment number is, and add the SM prefix, will I cause any problems.

    That should not create any issues and it is the correct place to make that change.

    Good luck!
