    When item numbers are superseded and the item number changes. What can I do to link the old item numbers history with the new item number?

    Hi Wayne-

    i'd recommend using the Substitute Item fields in Item Maintenance > Options. That can give you a link from the old item back to the new item it is replacing.

    Thanks.

    ding ding! @Joseph C. Markovich is correct that's the way to do it, furthermore, the substitute item allows you to add it to a sales order in lieu of a discontinued part, or a part that is back ordered too.​ You would simply choose the "Distribute" option on the back order window and then choose the substitute item:
