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.
Expanding of the AP invoice number came up many times before. In our next major version, we plan to expand the AP invoice number from 8 digits to 12 digits. We do understand that there are certain vendors (especially, trucking companies) will send you invoices over 12 digits. On the other hand, if we expand the maximum invoice number field to something like 25 digits, then it will cause difficult with displaying it on the screen because there are only so much real estate space. The common strategy to deal with this type of long invoice number problem is to use AP Voucher Reference. Enter the long invoice number on AP Voucher Reference. Then you should also go to Global Setup -> Acct -> AP Global Control. Turn on the following flag: "1. Print Voucher Reference On A/P Check?"
