Trackingnumber to long

Posted on by 10
I'm currently developing a plugin for transport booking systems and a strange problem came up.
The tracking number (for tracking link) I get when I create a shipment booking is 40 characters long, however business central can only handle 30 characters.
Does anyone have a tip on how we could get around this problem?
Thanks in advance!

    Since the standard field length cannot be modified, this unfortunately cannot be solved.
    You can generate a tracking number for BC and then create a new field to hold your value (40 characters long).
