Problem with invoice number

Hello, I am doing practical exam from Using Accounting Software and I have started to enter invoices and my problem is that I can't put invoice number like 001/24. I can't put that symbol / in invoice number and even if I put 00124 the invoice is save with number 124. I don't understand why. Can someone help me? Thank you

    how about it you lead with: ' Normally that works to show that you want to have zeroes to the left of a number. For the slash if i am unable to use that symbol i normally just put an underscore as in _
    So in this case i would attempt to record the invoice number as: '001_24
