[IUG] Vendor Codes - very basic question
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
We are a very new site - we are not live on acquisitions yet.
In our old Dynix system, Vendor Codes were system generated (numeric).
We are told that we have to input a vendor code. I really don't want to
have to ask staff to keep track of the vendor codes they have used. We
do not use jobbers and thus we have a lot of vendors.
I at first thought that we could use the initials of the vendor
followed by our account number for that vendor. On further thought,
though, I realize that this won't work, because many times when we need
to enter a new vendor, we don't have an invoice in front of us.
How do you assign a unique vendor code?
Thanks for your help and any ideas you can provide.
