Additional order status codes

I need to add additional order status codes. I’ve used all of them up to Z. Is there a way to add more codes starting with AA, AB etc? I have a service and in each order status I email a link to a secure form so that I can gather information.

The DB definition is for char(1). That is for any character code from 0-127. However, how the cart represents that in the Admin interface would be a crap shoot. They only allow letters A-Z (not a-z) nor any of the other ascii characters in the 0-127 range.

Having 26 order statusues seems a bit overkill…

thanks Tony. I understand about the overkill but for now this is all I could come up with. I’ll look around and see if there’s a different way to do what I’m trying to do without using order status.
