From BlythecoDev Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



This Extended Solution to the Accounts Payable module allows you to designate a separate ‘payee’ vendor on an invoice via a Custom Office UDF. This payee vendor's name and address can be printed on checks.

The Custom Office module must be activated in order for this to function. Additional functionality is available if CM-1001: Enhanced Custom Office User Defined Fields is installed.


Before installing any Extended Solution, please verify that the version level referenced on your installation file is the same version level as your Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) installation. (For more information please call (800) 425-9843). It is recommended to have a complete and tested backup prior to installing any application on your Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) platform.

Extended Solutions Control Center

Installing any Extended Solution will add an Extended Solutions Control Center to the Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) Library Master Utilities menu. When you open the Control Center, the following options will be available:

  • Merge Installation Files

Answer the following prompts:

A/P INVOICE UDF FOR ‘PAYEE VENDOR’: Define the Custom Office A/P Invoice UDF that will hold the payee vendor number. This UDF must be string, upper, or vendor type*, and at least 9-character long.
  • Vendor type UDF is available only if CM-1001: Enhanced Custom Office User Defined Fields is installed and enabled.

You will need to setup like-named UDFs in AP_INVOICEHEADER, AP_INVOICEHEADERPOSTING, and AP_OPENINVOICE, all data sourced from one to the other so that the Payee Vendor number is part of the AP_OpenInvoice table.

You should visit this Setup screen after each upgrade or reinstallation of this Extended Solution.

Role Maintenance The following Task has been added to Accounts Payable, Setup Options:

  • Extended Solutions Setup

Please review your security setup in Role Maintenance and make appropriate changes.


Invoice Entry
Each invoice which should be paid to a different vendor will need to have that Vendor Number in the specified UDF. When an invoice with a Payee Vendor is accepted, the ‘Separate Check’ flag will be set to checked. The user will not be able to override the flag.

Check Printing
The APCheckWrk file has been modified with the name and address of the payee vendor. You should replace the existing vendor name and address fields on your check form with the new fields.

If the payee vendor UDF is blank or contains an invalid vendor number, the invoice vendor information will be written to the new fields.

If there are multiple invoices on a check, the payee from the first invoice will be the payee for that check.

The features described above are not supported in Manual Check Entry.
