Series already used in Activity Log

I am getting error - Series already used in Activity Log - when I try to set my item naming series as follows:
.{supplier_number}-.#####

Supplier Number is custom field on Supplier. Any ideas? I searched but didn’t find this error message.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There was actually a bug in the system, per ERPNext Support. They resolved the issue and all is well for me now.
