Like it says, your number sequence is full.

You should locate that number sequence, and assign more space for it.

For example if it has been 4 numbers, from 0-9999, and it has used all, you could enlarge it to 5 numbers, giving it 90 000 more numbers to use.

I try to increase  the digit but the error is

"One or more references using the current number sequence are not sufficiently long to contain numbers from this number sequence."

Could you post a screenshot of the settings of your number sequence? With that, it's easier to help.

Yes this means that there already numbers generated and cannot be carry the new digit added now. I believe you need to create or use a new number sequence.

You can make more space by reducing the prefix characters in the format.

For example if your prefix has 5 chars, and the field where the number seq is used has 10 chars, you have only space for 5 numbers. With a 4 character prefix you have space for 6 numbers.

Or you can just create a new number sequence and start using that.

In general, when defining the number sequences, it's good to try to estimate the consumption, and allocate enough space so that they don't run out.

Please also discuss this with the party who has set up the system.

Create a new number sequence for that journal. If you want to also retain that format, then make your format as "MV-D-#######". Your last number might be something like "MV-D-99999". To start from next number, put the "smallest value" as 100000 in the General fast tab of number sequence form.
