Hi Elaine,

Yes as long as your unique number is in the 001 you can set up a new 
match rule referring to "Control-number" and match on that.  I use that 
quite a lot.  I think I posted about it about a year ago.
The Community documentation should be enough to get you going but do 
come back if you need more detail.
