Reuse Document Number in A/P?

Hi:

When you need to correct an invoice in A/P and you choose, well, "Correct", can you not reuse the same Document No. as before?

Thanks!

John

    Is there a setup "switch" that needs to be turned on, in order to enable this functionality?  I'm still getting messages saying that I cannot reuse the Vendor Invoice Number.

    Hi, you can reuse Vendor Invoice No./External Document No., not the Document No.

    For example.

    Hope this helps as well.

    Thanks.

    Hmm...I'm confused.

    If you cannot reuse the original number, what is used?

    Sorry John, no the External Document No/Vendor Invoice Number. Document No./internal number cannot be reused and I'm never in favor of manual numbers for document numbers.

    Hi Kim:

    So, are you saying that the workaround is to use Business Central's "internal" invoice number as the Document No. for the correcting invoice?

    No, but a simple work around is.. original document number '12345', correcting invoice's document number '12345.' The period gets overlooked by the vendor on check stubs but is unique to the system.
