Great Plains (GP 2010) Payables Management (PM) - incorrect vendor

I have loaded a lot of transactions into a batch and realized I was using the wrong vendor.  What is the correct way to handle this?  Go ahead and post the batch and the void or change the vendor in the open transactions table using SQL?  I do not want to re-enter all of these transactions if at all possible.  Thanks!

I would stongly advise against changing the vendor in SQL especially on posted transactions. The main reason for this is that this would bypass any logic that GP would normally apply to these transactions. It's almost impossible to predict what issues this might cause. Checking for all of them might actually take more time than re-entering all the invoices.

For posted transactions, this is even worse - there are probably at least a dozen tables that would need to be checked or changed. Including vendor summary tables, GL tables, etc.

Sorry not to have the answer you were looking for.

I'm confused.. I was asking about unposted transactions and in the answer, you are referring to posted transactions.  For the 2nd paragraph, did you mean "unposted" rather than posted?  Thanks!

Sorry about any confusion. In your question you asked about changing the vendor in the unposted batch, then asked if you should, "Go ahead and post the batch and the void or change the vendor in the open transactions table using SQL".

My answer is really the same for both posted and unposted - I really do not recommend this. It is bad enough for unposted transactions, but it is even worse for posted ones.

Hope that helps clarify.

So the transactions would have to be re-entered with the correct vendor?
Victoria YudinOwner / Dynamics GP ConsultantCommented:
Yes, that is the best course of action. If you have Integration Manager, perhaps you can import them instead of entering them manually?
