DBA Customer

Scenario…we received an RFQ from a new customer. They place an order and the PO is issued under a different company name. The company name we quoted is a DBA of the company name that issued the PO. What is the correct way to depict this in their customer setup?

There is no “correct” way. I think it is more your preference and how you will be interacting with the company. My personal opinion is to put the DBA on the first address line.

On Customer Maintenance there is a tab called Alternate i think that has a field for a DBA name, no logic behind it but can certainly be used to search and print on documents.


Without going down a rabbit hole and complicating this, you have a few options.

Configure the customer billing to use a different name
Add a line to address line for the DBA
Customer Name
dba/ Other Name
Setup a national account and use two customers.
Setup an alternate billto
