Platform/Version:  AccountMate Version 6.5 for SQL or MSDE

Module:  IC, AR, SO, PO, MI

Q:  Each time I save a new inventory record the system displays a message asking me to confirm some settings.  How do I disable this message?

A:  Access Module Setup in IC, AR, SO, PO or MI and mark the Suppress Inventory Settings Confirmation checkbox. Suppressing the confirmation message in one module suppresses it in all other activated modules for that company.

Q: How do I configure AccountMate so that I can enter the credit card vendorís charge transaction number when I post a credit card payment?

Q: I posted an AP prepayment transaction. When I generated the GL Transfer Report there were no entries for the transaction I recorded and the vendor balance remain unchanged. Why?

A: AccountMate creates journal entries for posting to GL and updates the vendor account balance only when you post a handwritten check or print a computer check for the prepayment.
