How to Exclude a Vendor from a Payment Run in Sage 300 Accounts Payable


  1. Open Accounts Payable > A/P Transactions > Create Payment Batch.
  2. In the Selection Code field, enter a payment selection code.
    • Tip: After you specify a selection code, the Selection Code field is no longer editable. To make the field editable again so you can change the selection code, click Clear.
      Alternatively, if the Selection Code field does not appear, you can edit all the fields in the Create Payment Batch screen to select the records you want.
  3. Fill in the fields on the Select tab, as usual. For help on the fields on this and other tabs on the Create Payment Batch screen, see “A/P Create Payment Batch Screen” (page 404).
  4. Fill in the fields on the Criteria tab, as usual.
  5. To exclude specific vendors who match all other selection criteria from this payment run, add them on the Exclusion tab:
    • In the Vendor Exclusion List table, press Insert to add a new line.
    • Enter the vendor number or select it using the Finder.
      • Note: You must add a separate line for each vendor you want to exclude.
  6. To remove a vendor from the exclusion list, select a line on the Vendor Exclusion List table, and then press Delete.
  7. If you use optional fields, check the Optional Field tab to ensure that any payment optional
    fields assigned to the batch are correct.
  8. Make sure your printer is turned on and ready, and then click Register to print the payment
  9. Review the register and make whatever changes are necessary for your check run.
    • Note: You can leave the Create Payment Batch screen at any time. Accounts Payable retains all the criteria you specified to ensure that the generated checks match the payment register.
  10. When you are ready to create the payment batch, click Generate.
