Lead import conflict


We imported leads using the lead import template and added the lead number starting from after the last lead that was imported. i.e. LEAD-00047 was already in the system, so we imported from LEAD-00048 to LEAD-00136. These numbers were entered by hand in the import template. This worked fine.

Now I want to create a new lead within erpnext directly, I get the error “Lead LEAD-00048 already exists”. What can I do?

Thanks for your help!

Hi @ecollot

you go to Naming Series page set Current Value of LEAD-



The formula that you wrote down didn’t work (it automatically set the number to 0 when I clicked save), but I was able to put 136 and it now works fine.
