Applying vendor credits to multiple invoices in Quickbooks 2014


I am trying to apply multiple vendor credits to multiple invoices. In other words i have 7 invoices to which I want to apply my 3 vendor credits. QuickBooks will not lump the invoices together. It shows the correct total sum; however, only looks at the last checked invoice.

Is there a way to do this? What would be the proper procedure?

Any help would be appreciated.

You cannot do what you want in QuickBooks.

Make copies of the vendor credits on paper and then allocate a vendor credit to each invoice (vendor bill) so that each bill comes out correctly.

Then allocate the 7 credits.  That should work just fine.

I understand. There is just no automatic way (so no QuickBooks way) to spread 7 things across 3 other things because the rule could be any allocation whatever.

So QuickBooks cannot do it and you will have to do it manually however it is best for you.

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

The answer which I found myself was to apply credit to each invoice separately and let QuickBooks do the rest. No copies.

I have offered the correct and proper answer to this question and the author has done what I suggested (that is manually) in http:#a40241695 and should be accepted accordingly.
