Avoid Paying the Same Bill Twice in QuickBooks
QuickBooks has a handy feature that will keep you from paying the same bill from a vendor twice. If you have this option turned on, when you try to record a bill that has the same number as an existing bill from the same vendor QuickBooks will alert you. To be sure this feature is enabled:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the Bills icon on the left pane and click the Company Preferences tab.
- Click the Warn About Duplicate Bill Numbers From Same Vendor check box.
- Click OK to save the new setting.
