Accounts Payable needs 25 characters for invoice numbers.
Accounts Payable needs 25 characters for invoice numbers. 8 characters are not sufficient for proper record keeping and reporting.
The reason we can’t do this was explained before. You can use voucher reference to resolve this issue.
You need to understand that many vendors use invoice numbers 15 characters or more. The reference field has very limited room. I am trying to make our accounting more accurate.
We plan to expand AP invoice number to 12 digits in Elliott V9. It is difficult to support 25 digits due to the real estate space on the screen and report. It will squeeze other fields out. We suggest you to use Voucher reference field to store the long vendor invoice number. You can also optionally print voucher reference on AP check per Global setup.
Accounts Payable needs to be able to edit invoice numbers and comments after posting. In addition the ability to reapply credits would also save many steps.
