Codes.csv Folder contains 6 columns with data

  • Column 1 contains the extended ID
  • Column 2 contains the serial number, the one that the client ordered
  • Column 3 contains the code sequence number
  • Column 4 contains the batch number, there can be multiple batches within one workorder as one batch will only contain up to 10 thousand codes
