{{Status|This is an [[Official Style Guideline|official style guideline]].}}
 
 
When a track is one of a series of identically named tracks with a defined order, separate the [[Part Number|part number]] from the [[Track Title|track title]] by a comma and a space.
 
 
: '''"TrackTitle, Part 1"'''
 
: '''"TrackTitle, Part 1: PartName"'''
 
 
This guideline is a specification of the more general [[Series Number Style|series number style]]. See that page for principles (especially in which cases [[Artist Intent|artist intent]] overrides this guideline).
 
 
Alternative names for parts may be used, such as Section, or their non-English equivalents.
 
* Note that if the title of a track is just "''Part 1''" or similar then this guideline should not apply, because then "''Part 1''" is considered being the [[Main Title|main title]] of the track and not the [[Part Number|part number]].
 
* Also note that the [[Abbreviation Style|abbreviation style]] says that you should not use abbreviations in titles. So "Pt." should always be expanded to "Part" (assuming the [[Release Language|release language]] is English).
 
* Also note that the [[Part Name|part name]] must be formatted according to [[Subtitle Style|subtitle style]].
 
 
==Examples==
 
 
* "''[[Track:36bd10fa-3214-4876-ab75-55b59f31606d|Flares, Part 3]]''"
 
* "''[[Track:9a414931-0cb3-48ec-861e-0c4c344199c5|09-15-00, Part One]]''"
 
* "''[[Track:d5590ff3-51d4-44db-89c6-0a2372524199|Creepin', Parts 1 & 2]]''" -- Two numbers are noted using an ampersand "&", the part indication in its plural form.
 
* "''[[Track:fdd06153-56d0-420d-9130-8103723b2989|Train to Lamy Suite, Parts 1-3]]''" -- More than 2 numbers, which are in sequence are separated by a hyphen "-", the part indication in its plural form.
 
* "''This Is a Trackname, Parts 1, 4 & 5''" -- More than 2 numbers, which are *not* in sequence are separated by a comma "," and the last one is added with an ampersand "&", the part indication in its plural form.
