Auto-Incremental Serial Numbers Starting at 000 not 001

Our company is going to be purchasing an item that starts with serial number 000 and can go up to 999. We’ll be purchasing these in batches of 100, where the first batch is 000-099. Ideally, I would like to set the serial class to autogenerate the serial numbers when I receive the items. The issue I’m running into, however, is that the lowest serial number I can start generating is 001. 

Obviously, I could make this item a User-Enterable serial number. However, I’d really like to do this automatically instead of by hand. 

Any thoughts?

Hello @mcate ,

If you go Numbering Sequences you can set a sequence that starts at 000 and goes to 099.

Let us know if this works for you.
