AP0400M Accounts Payable Vendor Account Inquiry


Vendor Account Inquiry

Application Overview


Whenever you need information on a particular vendor's account or a particular invoice, Vendor Account Inquiry is the application to use.


This application displays the vendor's name, terms, invoice date, due date, voucher number, and any credit memos or checks that have been applied towards the invoice. The four types of transactions shown are V = Regular Voucher (Vendor Invoice), Cm = Vendor Credit Memo Voucher, Cc = Computer Check, Mc = Manually Written Check.


The discount taken, net A/P amount for each invoice, the purchase order number, and the reference field is also displayed for each transaction.


Vendor invoices that have been fully paid off but not yet purged from the file can be displayed or not, at your option.


Up to 15 transactions can be displayed on the screen at one time.  The F1 key is used to step through the account one page at a time, if there are more than 15 transactions.  If you miss an item during a multiple page inquiry, press the F2 key to return to the previous page.  If the entire account is looked at in this manner, the vendor total A/P amount will be displayed when the end of the account is reached.


If you wish to inquire about a particular vendor invoice, the invoice number can be entered, and the account will be displayed from that invoice on.  If this is done, invoices with lower numbers will not display and the vendor A/P total will not be shown.
