Accounts Payable Q&A: Check for Duplicate Invoices

March 2018    Tags: , , ,

We had an invoice that was entered twice for a vendor. This resulted in a check being printed for double the invoice amount. Is there a way to avoid this in the software?

The Check for Duplicate Invoices setting can help prevent this from happening. When this setting is enabled, a warning will be shown if an invoice or manual check for the same vendor has the same invoice number, invoice date, and invoice amount. This preventative measure is performed when an invoice/manual check is added, or when an invoice is changed and saved.

To enable Check for Duplicate Invoices

  1. From the Utilities menu, select Customization.
  2. On the Main tab, select the Check for Duplicate Invoices check box.
  3. Press Ctrl+S.
