/Is it possible to separate the variant numbers for different item numbers? Currently, the variant numbers continue with the same sequences for all items. However, we want the item number variant sequence to be changed for different items. For example, Item 1 should have numbers 001, 002, 003, 004, 005 for its variants, while Item 2 should have numbers 001, 002, 003, 004 for its variants./

    No, there's no mechanism to have the variant number unique at the item number level of granularity, it is a number sequence at the legal entity level of granularity.   Also, this is part of the key on InventDimCombination if I recall correctly, so I don't think you want to go changing it. 
     
    You can use Product Nomenclature to get something similar / smart number for your variants. Nomenclature of product variant numbers and names - Supply Chain Management | Dynamics 365 | Microsoft Learn
     
    My question for you is what business problem are you trying to solve for by having the variant number be unique at the item number level of granularity?

    Hi,
    You can check out the section of this document on Product and item number sequences, which outlines the results of importing and manually creating certain combinations of numbering sequence and field mapping settings.
