Custom lot numbers

By default Civil Pro creates a 9 digit Lot number based on the Work Type, Area Code and an auto-incrementing index (WWAAAAIII). You can customise how this Lot number is created by setting a Project Option for your custom Lot number definition.

Custom Lot Schema

• #W(<int>) = the Lot’s Work Type – truncated to <int> characters long
• #A(<int>) = the Lot’s Area Code
• #P(<int>) = a Primary Tag (requires that showPrimaryTag be set to “true” in the constants – refer Civil Pro Tags)
• #I(<int>) = an auto-increment index (must be the last element of the schema)

For example, the third lot raised with Work Type SG and Area Code MC01 will be labelled SGMC01003 using the default settings.

Example Custom Lot Codes

#W(2)#A(4)#I(3) SGMC01003 (the Civil Pro default)
#W(2)-#A(4)-#I(3) SG-MC01-003
Lot#I(3) Lot003
#W(2)-#A(4)-#P(3)-#I(3) SG-MC01-BD1-003 (assumes Lot has a Primary Tag of BD1)
#W(2)-#A(2)-#I(3) SG-MC-003
#W(2)#I(3) SG003
