Can I pay a vendor without entering a bill? Vendor Info/Transactions shows open balances for payments without bills, but doesn't show up in AP, which is good. Thanks.
I currently enter Bills and use Pay Bills to correctly track what I owe in reports, etc. However, I have lots of old payments to vendors that were made just by writing a check without entering a bill. I would simply enter the amounts under the "expenses" or "items" tabs, bill to customers if appropriate, etc. The problem with the old checks paid without bills is that when I go to Vendor Information/Transactions there's an Open Balance column, and all the checks paid without bills show up as negative amounts. It doesn't seem to cause a problem in the A/P but it's strange that it shows negative open balance amounts. Can I just ignore these?
