Why does PM30600 have a significant number of vendors with Null values?

While getting assistance with another question, I was given excellent help from Victoria in the form of a view, view_AP_Distributions.  When running it I discovered that about 4% of the total transaction records in that table contain a null vendorName (VendorID was spaces).  It was discovered that 99% of the problem records were found in the PM30600 table.  Many of these are current records, some even added via the interface today.  When I look at these transactions in the G.P. client, they do contain the proper Vendor information.  How can I link these records up to a vendorID for my query and how can I prevent more of these records from being created with Null/blank values?  I imagine that the user must be doing something, though they claim to be doing all vendor stuff the same way.

Thanks

It looks like I can get the VendorID from PM30200.  So I'll have to get the vendor name probably from PM00200.  I would still like to know how these transactions are going in inconsistently.

Thanks,

For what it's worth - I just checked the PM30600 table for about 10 different customers of ours, I didn't find a single one with blank vendor ID's in the PM30600 table. Not sure if it is causing any issues, but I have not seen this before and I have been doing this a long time. Maybe someone else will have some ideas for you or would have seen this before.

It looks like this happened because of a custom integration that imported vendors from a 3rd party system.  Thanks for the help!

This was something that was causing problems for exporting data in a software conversion that moved us away from MS Dynamics.  It was determined to be caused by a custom integration that imports vendors from a software system used by an affiliated business group within our organization.  We have since hired an outside resource to assist with this conversion.
