Balance. One number that appears at the bottom line and says it all. Well, almost. The balance of an account or business partner is a summary of multiple actions, transactions and amounts. Depends on the business and working methods, the balance of a customer or vendor might be zero while the given business partner actually has open invoices yet to be paid.
To include these open transactions in a payment run, SAP Business One enhanced the Payment Wizard and now it includes also the business partners with zero balance:
The option “Include Vendors and/or Customers with Zero Balance” is selected by default, and applied to the business partners range defined by the user. Clicking the “…” button opens a list of document types, allowing the user to fine-tune the selection criteria.
