How does the 1099 Vendor Name get created and can it be edited?
When you first create a new Vendor Record the Vendor Name will Populate the Check Name field on the General page and 1099 Vendor Name on the 1099/Checks page. If the same name is used for all three fields, you only need to fill in the Vendor Name and click submit.
However, if your check name should be different than the Vendor Name, make that change before clicking the submit button (for the first time), at which point whatever is in the Check Name will update the 1099 Vendor Name field also.
You can edit any Name field on any existing Vendor record after it has been created and no other name will be changed. This means if you want to change 2 or more name fields you will need to edit each of them manually after the initial submission. If the vendor name on the 1099 is incorrect click the 1099/Checks link to update the 1099 vendor name.
