In Dynamics GP you can now enter a long description field for Payables Transactions.  To enable this functionality, there is an option in Payables Setup – “Enable Long Description in Payables Transaction Entry”.  When this is marked, the long description field will display in Payables Transaction Entry.

The long description is a 200-character field that you can enter additional information for the transaction in.  It will display on Transaction Entry, Payables Transaction Entry Zoom, and PM Transaction Inquiry.  The long description will display on checks that are printed from Payables Check Entry within Payables Transaction Entry and the Payables document printed in Payables Transaction Entry.

The long description will not post to the General Ledger.  The check with Stub on Top, Check with Stub on Bottom, Check with Stub on Top and Bottom – Text, Check with Stub on Top and Bottom – Graphical, Check with Two Stub on Top, User Defined Check 1, User Defined Check 2 have all been edited to include the long description when the check is printed from Payables Transaction Entry.
