You can call Debtor.Create() with NULL as number - that will automatically set it to the next available number, thus saving you a round trip for GetNextAvailableNumber().

However, by definition, the 'next available number' will always be the highest used number +1 - both in the UI and the API. There is no concept of 'resetting' this - except, of course, by re-numbering all debtors whose number you may have given 'too high' numbers, thus ultimately reducing the 'next available number'.

(Re-numbering debtors is only available in the UI - and must be enabled via Settings -> Change of numbers).


Best regards,
