Nothing automatic, you have to check items one by one.

For example, take HG A. One item in T311 R166 is 75127/7
(la, H.Gr. Südukraine, Folder or reports dealing with evacuation of Sevastopol and the Crimea by sea. May 13 - Nov. 6, 1944.)

On Invenio, you will find it under RH 19-V/2. Invenio gives the Alte Signatur, which is 75127/7

In other words, the link exists but it's not the primary classification key of either archive.

for example, I got this reference from BA-MA: RH 24-24/200K.

Where is in NARA?

Identify what it is in Invenio first and then look for it in the descriptions of the NARA microfilm rolls here:

Thank you for showing this method, using the method I was able to find for example, BAMA RH 19 V/62 = 75126/59 = NARA T311 R162, so thank you again :).
