We have always accessioned specimens with multiple parts as 1, 2, 3, etc. and the corresponding paraffin blocks as A, B, C, etc.  We are in the process of changing this to letters for the different specimen parts and numbers for the blocks.  For those of you who do it this way, have you encountered any problems?  For example, if the specimen arrives and the different parts are numbered, do you simply convert them to letters?  Thank you.
