Open accounts payable invoices can be assigned to another vendor for payment after the invoices have been entered into the system.

To assign an invoice after it has been saved, the following tasks should be performed.
• Select the AP Paydate Management program from the Menu.

• Use the Pull Down menu to select the Assign option from the Options Pull Down Menu.
• Select the vendor that the invoice should be assigned to from the Vendor List. Once you have selected the ASSIGN option from the menu, the system will display a list of the vendors in your database. At this point you should choose the vendor that the invoice should be assigned to from the list by highlighting it and pressing the ENTER key (you may also press the ESCAPE key at this point to skip assignment and return to the AP Paydate Management program.
