Width – Specify the number of characters to be used for the selected component.

Delimiter – Specify ‘Y’ in this data field if you want a delimiter sign after the component. Delimiter sign refers to a symbol to be used as a separator between two components. For example, while generating Print Name, you want that first three characters should be for Item Name and next three characters for Item Group. However, at the same time you want that after first three characters a hyphen (-) sign should be placed to differentiate between Item Name and Item Group. Hence, for this purpose, you can specify ‘Y’ in this data field. This data field does not appear for the last component, as there is no need to give a delimiter sign at the end of the Print Name.

Del Sign – This data field gets activated if you have if you have specified ‘Y’ in the Delimiter data field. Specify the delimiter sign to be used after the component.

After entering appropriate data in the data fields, click the Save button to save the Masters Configuration.
