QMS Electronic Queue Setup

The letter in the QMS order is the code of the cash station + the number of the letter in the alphabet corresponding to this code. For example, if the code of the station at which the order is made is 1, then the number will be A-01.
The order from the station with code 3 will have number C-02, and so on.
