The Name-Based Configuration is designed for botanists. Click the 'Configure' button to open the associated dialog as shown below. Enter values for the Name and for the Next ID number to enable the 'Add' button; click this to add the new numbering choice. For example, entry of SMITH and 201 will automatically assign the first Collection Number 'SMITH0201'. This number will auto-increment to give a value of 'SMITH0202' for the next record, and so on.

Name Based To the top

The NCI Number-Based Configuration is designed for National Cancer Institute contract collectors and requires configuration. Click the 'Configure' button to open the associated dialog. Add values as required. This number will auto-increment to give a next value.

The Integer-Based Configuration assigns a sequential number and is managed internally by NAPIS starting with the number 1. This number will auto-increment to give a next value. Changing this starting number is a Database Administrator function and requires technical support

The Custom Configuration allows free-form numbering and does not require configuration.
