The Vendor Information > Update page allows you to add or edit a vendor record. For Type select if the vendor is an Organization or Individual. If the vendor is an organization enter the Organization Name. If the vendor is an individual you can specify a Title and edit the First Name, Middle Name, Last Name, Salutation, and Suffix fields. There are also the following tabs: Vendor Information, ACH Accounts, Phones, Emails, Addresses, Demographics, and Attachments.
This Section Includes:
Specify if the vendor is an "Organization" or an "Individual". Organizations have one field for the organization name whereas an Individual has fields for Title, First Name, Middle Name, Last Name, and Suffix.
Vendors who are already designated as employees in Payroll cannot be changed from an "Individual" to an "Organization". This assures that only individuals are issued a W-2 form.
You can use the "Doing Business As" field on the Demographics tab to specify an organization name, if appropriate.
Uncheck this field if you want to mark a vendor as inactive. Inactive vendors do not appear on vendor lists and labels. In addition, when searching for a vendor, only active vendors display unless you uncheck the “Only Active” check box on the Vendor Search window.
