LA AP - Vendors: Combine then Re-index & Pack

Back up your data via re-index: (see last page for information on how to do this.) 

Click the Accounts Payable Tab, and then select the Combine Vendors Routine. 


 
Please note: both vendors that you are combining must be marked as active 

Use the down arrows in the Combine Vendor (From) and the With Vendor: (to) to select the vendors you wish to combine. 

Once you have clicked on the [Combine Vendor] button, the ‘From’ vendor will no longer be an option. Also, all of the invoices and checks you wrote to the ‘From’ vendor will now appear in the ‘To’ Vendor’s record. 

If this did not turn out as you expected, you may go to System & Users and restore the backup. This will essentially return your data to the exact same state it was in before you combined the vendors. Any work others were doing during this process (on other workstations) will be lost. For the most efficient work, combine vendors when no one is working on the system. 

Re-index & Pack 

Re-indexing your data on a regular basis may help prevent issues. 

This may only be done when you are the only one in the system. We do recommend that you answer “yes” to the backup prompt, even if your system is backed up on a regular basis. 
 
 
The example below is most likely from a different module than the one you are working in. However, the principle is the same (as are the steps).
