This is something I've been meaning to ask for sometime.

What do you guys put for 'Distribution reference, or distribution reference number' on the forms? Sometimes there is what looks like a specific number on the CU, but more often than not there is nothing to distinguish a particular CU.

I heard they made a remake ? Not that i'd be interested in that. Still weighing up if my kids are old enough yet to watch the original. I have so many horror films to show them.

As for the db thing, call it what you want. Once you put a label on it, it's named. Call it Malcolm, or Sandra.

Are you referring to DB reference?
Either leave it blank if there is only one, or call it #1.
If there is more than one, either give each a # or a description.

If they aren't already labelled then I would generally begin at DB1 and make my way from there.
Agreed. As an aside (more relevant in commercial) when a board is retired or replaced, unless the circuit arrangement of the replacement is an absolute 'like for like', it is good practice to retire the former DB number, as opposed to reusing that DB number. This is to avoid any confusion in documentation that may exist referring to a former board layout.
 
Lol. For a reason I can’t explain I always call it main when there is only one. Probably thinking main(s) or the main one. Dunno, never really thought about it until now. DB1 works though.
