I am looking for a way to search for our part number shown below. We are required to use a duplicate PARTID for our inventory due to the type of product we sell. I have created a UNIQUESKU which is the part number + an arbitrary check digit that is unique to each product listed. Since woocommerce can only use one unique sku this was the only alternative I could come up with. My issue is customers want to search our website using the published PARTID, the UNIQUESKU is only internal and does not match published information. Is there a way to add a custom field PARTID somewhere that can be searched using your search function without adding a 3rd party plug in? I would need it to produce the results as well as be able to find all instances of the PARTID in the woocommrece product database.
My other thought was to truncate the SKU display on the front end of the website to hide everything after the ” – ” [dash] since the characters after the dash are only for woocommrece product database.
Thanks for using our theme.
Please provide some screenshots to help me better understand your request.

Also, provide URL of a product with such SKU on your site.
