Vendor ID Name

The visible Vendor ID can be changed because the Key field is
VendorNum which is a system assigned # that never changes, and isn't
even viewable in Vantage. You cans see it in Report Builder,
Crystal, or Access for example but not on any of the Vantage Screens
or Canned Reports. We have changed Customer ID's and Names and
Vendors ID's and Names when necessary. It is certainly favorable to
setting up a brand new Vendor or Customer because you would lose all
of the history tied to that customer. I like the ability to change
on the fly and have everything tied to the customer or vendor change
with it. It was not possible with our old DCD system and that was a
tremendous pain when a customer would change its name. All open
orders would have to be cancelled and recreated for the new
Customer! Not anymore, it is a great feature to be able to do this.

Does any one know if it is a bad thing to change a Vendor ID name.... I was surprised that it will let you. I just wondered if anyone had and if it caused any trouble for them...
Thanks

It changes everything connected, Open or closed. Its also a trip when a
Vendor or Customer changes their business name and ALL of your history
changes accordingly. Gets interesting sometimes.

Shouldn't hurt anything. The Vendors file is actually keyed on a
automatically-generated sequential ID# (the one you use for joins in
reports.) The key that's visible on the screens is just a human-readable
convenience.

We have done it - no problems. Remember that it will change for all past
transactions/documents for the vendor. Vantage indexes from a VenNum that
you can not change.

Sorry - so late in responding. I was off on Friday and just saw this post.

Shirley ~~ you can still tell where the check was sent to though -- even if
you have changed the address 5 times. The address the check was made
payable is stays with the payment activity regardless of the new address.

It changes everything connected, Open or closed. Its also a trip when a
Vendor or Customer changes their business name and ALL of your history
changes accordingly. Gets interesting sometimes.
