Vendor Name - Suggest Vendor Payments

  • 1.  Vendor Name - Suggest Vendor Payments

    Posted Oct 25, 2019 11:14 AM

    Is there a way to get the Vendor Name to display when using the Suggest Vendor Payments within the Payment Journal. We have the Vendor Number (Account No.) but it would make it easier to also have names when preparing to make payments. I did the Choose Columns function but do not see vendor name (or something similar) as an option.

    I was hoping this was something we could easily resolve inside NAV2017.

    I appreciate any help or insight into this question.

    Hi Lukas,

    I think by default Vendor Name should appear in Description of Payment Journal Line (as per code).

    But if you want Vendor name in a separate column then I would suggest adding a flowfield in Gen. Journal Line (81) which gets populated with Vendor Name run time.

    I hope it helps.

    Our Vendor Name is under 'Account Name'.  Sometimes I add all columns because I can't tell what's in them... and then I go back and remove those that I don't need.

    Its an odd thing to not have this, isn't it?   I have had customization completed for clients before.   You may have noticed that If you key into the payment journal manually and select the vendor, then the vendor name populates.  But yes, when completing the Suggest Vendor Payment process, it puts the invoice for the payment into the description.
    The modification can be simple, but needs your developer to complete.

    Most clients request this which tells me it should be something that is standard, but is not.  A modification is required (typically a flowfield).
