(CMMS) Tips – Special Characters

The key to numbering equipment is to understand how software displays the information.


It is critical that special characters such as * are not used. If you think of Microsoft Excel, the * is used as the symbol for multiplication. Using the * as part of the equipment number is for obvious reasons not a good idea.


In summary, no special characters should be used in key fields. Even hyphens and underscores should be avoided as they may cause immediate or unforeseen software problems in the future.
