When you are numbering the flights in a schedule, it’s helpful to use the Code Tool for making large numbers of changes. One use of the Code Tool is to set the flight numbers in a series from 1-n. A second use for the Code Tool is to increment all of the flight numbers to make room for a flight or renumber events after removing a flight.
To number events start out by selecting events and then click Code Tool.
Numbering in a Series
After the Code Tool comes up, you have a couple choices how to change the codes of the selected flights. To set them in a series of incrementing number like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…, set the desired starting number and then the number you want to increment by each time.
A starting number of of 1 and increment of 1 would give you 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…. A starting number of 17 and increment of 1 would give you 17, 18, 19, 20, 21… A starting number of 1 and increment of 2 would give you 1, 3, 5, 7, 9…
Incrementing/Decrementing the Code
If you need to add or remove a flight in the middle of the schedule, it is helpful to be able to renumber flights to make room or keep the numbers continuous. To increment the code for some flights, select the flights you would like to change and then select Increment from the Code Tool. Enter the value in the Increment Field by which you would like to change the flight codes. If you wish to lower the code of the selected flights, use a negative number in the Increment By field.
