Hi Adam,

You can convert from Alphanumeric(Base36)to decimal(Base10) by calculation
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base_36

for who being lazy like me, use conversion web site like below
www.unitconversion.org/numbers/base-10-to-base-36-conversion.html

(the websites are not related to Seagull Scientific.)

Base36:Base10
A0001:16796161
AW3YY:18294298
AZZZZ:18475775

AW3YY - A0001 = 1498137
AZZZZ - A0001 = 1679614

To keep track both alpha-numeric and decimal serial number, you can have two serialized text on a label.
(you can specify not to print a text, by modify object > General tab > Do Not print Object)

Hope that helps!
