Tigerpaw Unique ID


This field uniquely identifies each item in Tigerpaw's catalog and users are able to choose the format of this identifier. From SIX, the Manufacturer and Model field will be used to create this ID. We have created a parameter on this report that will allow the user to choose how many characters of each field they wish to use. The default value for both Manufacturer and Model is 0 and this will use the entire Manufacturer/Model string. You can also choose the Delimiter String, the default being a colon.




An example of this ID field with the defaults for a McIntosh MX150 is:
