AP01S4 Accounts Payable Vendor Audit Trail Report

Vendor Audit Trail Report

Application Overview

The Vendor Audit Trail Report shows any additions, changes, and deletions made to the Vendor File.  When you are in A/P Setup, you can choose to keep an "audit trail" on the Vendor File.  Additions to the file are shown on lines labeled "Added."


Changes are shown on the report with a "Before" and "After" line.  The "Before" line shows all vendor information as it was before the change.  The "After" line shows only those fields that were changed.  Any fields that were not changed are shown as spaces.  The one exception to this is if a field was changed to spaces.  In this case, the field will show as "!" 


Deletions are shown on lines labeled "Deleted."
