Importing Paid AP Invoices into Dynamics GP: Payment Numbers and Distributions

By Steve Endow

I recently developed a Dynamics GP import that created AP Invoices for employee expenses.  One thing that was different with this integration was that some of the employee expenses had already been reimbursed or paid, either with cash or by credit card.

It seemed pretty straightforward at first, but while designing the integration, I learned two interesting things.  When importing Paid AP Invoices into Dynamics GP using eConnect, you'll want to pay attention to the Payment Numbers and Distributions, as they will vary depending on whether the invoice was paid with Cash, Check, or Credit Card.

When importing an AP Invoice paid via Credit Card, on the Payables Credit Card Entry window, the Payment Number field should be populated with the next AP Voucher Number, not the next AP Payment Number.  And the Credit distribution for an invoice paid with a Credit Card should be Type of Cash, with the GL account being the AP account from the Credit Card vendor (my customer uses a different AP account for their Credit Card vendor).

Here's a video sharing what I learned about the proper values for Payment Numbers and Distributions when importing the paid invoices using eConnect:
