Editing an Existing Vendor

The following instructions are for adding a new address to a vendor (the most common update).  Other updates can be made to the vendor record, based upon the purpose of the update and the information that you have available.

Please note, the following are NOT reasons to add a new address, if all other information for the address matches an existing address:

  • Adding a customer number – there is a separate tab for that, so it can be added independent of the address
  • Slight difference in the name – common occurrences are full name vs. acronym, with/without business designation (e.g., INC, LLC)
  • Attention lines
