How to credit/debit a return or invoice on Sage 300 Purchase Orders

Steps:

  1. Open Purchase Orders > P/O Transactions > Credit/Debit Note Entry.  For information on the fields on the Credit/Debit Note Entry screen, see “P/O Credit/Debit Note Entry Screen” (page 399).
  2. In the Document Number field, enter the credit note number (issued by the vendor), and then press the Tab key.
  3. In the Vendor Number field, type the vendor number or use the Finder to select it.
  4. Use the fields on the Credit Note tab to fill in general (header) information for the credit note, as follows:
    1. In the Document Type field, select Credit Note or Debit Note.
    2. In the From Document field, select  Invoice or Return (if you are entering a credit note).
    3. Type the return or invoice number from which you are creating the credit note or debit
      note, or use the Finder to select it. The program displays information from the original
      document.  If the return or invoice has been cleared from Purchase Orders, you will have to add all item details and additional costs for the credit note or debit note, and then match the credit note or debit note to the invoice in Accounts Payable. If a message appears stating that the document does not exist, click Close to continue.
    4. In the Credit/Debit Note Date field, enter or select the date for the credit note.
    5. In the Posting Date field, enter or select the date to which the credit note should be
      posted in the general ledger. (The posting date you enter determines the entry in the
      adjacent year/period field.)
    6. In the Credit/Debit Note Total field, type the total amount of the credit note or debit note.
      If you are entering a credit note from a return, the program displays the total from the
      return. If you are entering a credit or debit note for an invoice, the program displays a zero total.
      • Note: The amount in this field must match the total displayed on the Totals tab before you can post this document.
    7. You can also specify the vendor payment location and change the vendor account set
      (to change the Accounts Payable control accounts).
    8. Enter a description and optional reference for the document.
    9. Tab into the detail entry table, and then follow these steps to add or edit the type of
