Use this form to:

  • Enter adjustments to open and fully paid documents in vendor accounts. (You use Adjustment Entry to adjust fully paid documents only when you have not yet cleared the documents from Accounts Payable.)
  • Edit batches of adjustments created during posting (when adjustment batches contain errors), and imported from other accounting programs.
  • Print a batch listing report for the selected batch.

You can also enter adjustments to documents to which you are applying payments in the Payment Entry form, if you select the Allow Adjustments In Payment Batch option (in the Options form). You use the Payment Entry form to edit this type of adjustment.
