Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


To permanently delete several accounts payable invoices from your files, select option 4. The inventory received on the purged invoices will not be purged, just the accounts payables invoice information will be purged.


Only invoices that have been paid in full can be purged. To mark an invoice as paid, either write a check for it using Make a Payment to One Vendor or Make Payments to Several Vendors or by directly telling the program that the invoice has been paid in full by using the Enter/Change Invoices Payable option from the Inventory Menu.


The following screen will appear:
