Expand/Collapse item  Overview

Use this procedure to copy existing vendor information to a new vendor.

If you have vendors whose activity is allocated to multiple divisions, you must establish a different vendor number for each division. After the address and constant information is established for this first vendor number (for the first division), you can copy this information to all subsequent divisions. If the Purchase Order module is installed, you can also copy all vendor purchase addresses. After copying the information, you can modify the information for the new vendor number.


To copy vendor information

  1. Select Accounts Payable Main menu > Vendor Maintenance.

  2. In the Vendor No. field, enter a new vendor number and click Copy From. For more information, see Vendor Maintenance / Vendor Inquiry - Fields.

Note If you have set up divisions in the Accounts Payable module, the first two characters entered in the Vendor No. field must be a division number.

  1. In the Copy From window, in the Vendor No. field, enter the vendor number to copy information from. For more information, see Copy From (Vendor Maintenance) - Fields.

  2. Select the Copy Purchase Addresses check box to also copy the vendor's purchase addresses. Click OK.

The vendor information is copied to the new vendor.
