Numbering System for Vendors & Customers
(Ottawa, ON, Canada)
What I'd really like to be able to do is assign account numbers to both Vendors & Customers.
Customers could start with 1000, Vendors with 4000, Expense Suppliers with 7000....that type of idea.
I find it frustrating to have to constantly type names ...especially when I have several accounts with the SAME vendor. I find the drop-down lists time consuming, and would much rather be able to simply enter the vendor # and get to the correct vendor.
Actually...the same goes for G.L. accounts :)
Good idea for the vendors & customers. Did you know that you *can* have numbers for the G/L accounts?
Turn it on by following this path:
Edit > Preferences
Then, select the first preference: Accounting
Click the Company tab. Check the box at the top that says, "Use account numbers." So there you go - you now have account numbers for the G/L accounts.
Thanks for writing.
