Usually to create a new supplier account or edit an existing supplier’s account details, click menu Ledgers > Purchase > Account Maintenance.
Alternatively, click the Purchase Ledger Account Maintenance button on the toolbar.
It is a good idea to have a fixed structure for your supplier codes to help you identify and group them.
Sometimes you may be in the process of posting invoices and do not have an existing supplier – You can continue to process the invoice – just identify from the drop down list the next account number you can use, enter it and you will be asked if you wish to create a brief version of the account – enough to continue with the invoice. Make a note of the account number and later go to the account – see above , and complete the rest of the details. See the following images for how it’sdone.
