I loaded an EDI Invoice, and the system linked it to the wrong Vendor record.
This occurred because the Vendor EDI Code on the intended Vendor record is exactly the same as the Vendor Code on a different Vendor record. The system insures that the Vendor EDI Code being defined on a Vendor record is unique. However, it does NOT check whether it matches an existing Vendor Code on a different Vendor record. It's imperative for proper matching of incoming EDI messages (Invoices, etc.) that you NOTassign a Vendor EDI Code on one Vendor record that is the same as the Vendor Code on a different Vendor record.
Note that it is OK to have the Vendor EDI Code match the Vendor Code on the SAME Vendor record. In fact, this is recommended where possible to avoid confusion.
