Add supplier invoice number to bank feed reconciliation items

When allocating a supplier payment in bank feed to open invoices for that supplier the invoice number recorded in the invoice entry screen in the supplier reference field is not shown. Fields named “number” and “reference” are available in the open invoices but do not show the supplier reference. It makes part allocation or allocation when there are multiple invoices with the same value impossible within bank feeds.

Interestingly in Audit Trail the supplier reference is shown in a field called Invoice Number but cannot be searched for.

Also interestingly in the supplier ledger the supplier reference is shown in a field called number. Obviously not the same number as appears in bank feeds.

When number doesn’t equal number can we trust 1 to equal 1?

    I agree. Also a consistent approach with regards to the headings between supplier/customer and audit trail would be preferable
