About A/P Entry (Voucher Listing)

The accounts payable entry screen allows recording a voucher to pay an invoice.

Duplicate Invoice Check

To assist in preventing duplicate payments, Campus Cafe will check if the invoice number entered matches an invoice number previously used for the same vendor. The voucher must have been processed; the duplicate check will not occur if the matching invoice number is in queue waiting to be processed. 

Campus Cafe may also be configured for what elements to check when evaluating whether the entry is a duplicate.

  • If custom control INV_DUPE, Sequence 1, Parameter 2 is set to Y the system will present a warning message if the invoice number for the vendor was previously used on a voucher regardless of the invoice amount. If the custom control is set to N the system will only present a warning if the invoice number for the vendor was previously used on a voucher only if the invoice amount is also the same.
  • If custom control INV_DUPE, Sequence 1, Parameter 3 is set to Y the system will present a warning message if the invoice number for the vendor was previously used on a voucher regardless of the invoice date. If the custom control is set to N the system will only present a warning if the invoice number for the vendor was previously used on a voucher only if the invoice date is also the same.

The expense line for the consulting should be indicated as 1099 reportable, and the other line should be left blank. Options set using STPARM PVTNCD
