Streamlined, Personalized Grid Entry

Efficient, streamlined, and user-friendly dual-grid entry screens are throughout the entire core accounting suite in Sage 100 ERP, including Accounts Payable. You can work the way you want to, adjust column order, and organize your more frequently used fields in a primary grid and your lesser-used fields in a secondary grid.

Divisional Accounting

Assign separate accounts payable general ledger accounts to each department or division. All reports can provide divisional totals.

Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable Clearing

Apply invoices automatically or selectively to the vendor’s balance, eliminating the manual matching process of issuing checks and posting payments. This is especially helpful for accounts receivable customers that are also accounts payable vendors.

Payment History Report

Access the invoice history file for a detailed record of accounts payable invoices, including detailed distribution of expense amounts to various general ledger accounts. The detailed Check History report provides a complete record of invoices and payments for each check.

Use Tax and Freight Allocation

Flag the entire document for use tax and specify which general ledger account to expense for freight.

Credit Card Balance Transfer

Designate vendors that represent credit card companies. When entering invoices for a credit card vendor, you may classify individual expense lines to alternate vendors for tracking purchase history or for 1099 purposes.

Automatic Payment Selection

Select invoices for automatic payment based upon the due date, discount due date, or vendor. Select individual invoices for full or partial payment. Place vendors on hold to prevent disbursal of automatic payments.

Invoice Entry

Automatically calculate due dates, discount due dates and amounts, and expense invoices to any number of accounts.

Repetitive Invoice Processing

Automatically process repetitive billing such as rent, loan payments, and utility payments. Recurring invoices are automatically prepared without repetitive data entry.


Print Accounts Payable checks on standard or custom check stock or use blank check stock with MICR encoding. Print two check stubs on a single page to accommodate laser-printed checks.

Extended Stub Report

Print an optional Extended Stub report that can include invoice detail for all checks or for checks where information does not fit on one stub.

Manual Checks

Record handwritten checks, reversals, and voided checks, then print individual checks from the manual check entry program.

Check Reversal

When reversing a check, you are asked if the invoice should be recalled. If yes, the entire check run is put back on file.

International Address Capability

Handle international addresses with vendor masterfiles that include three address lines, country codes, international postal codes, and expanded telephone number fields.

Memo Manager

Memo attachments flow through the system, and you can maintain memos in history. Enter and maintain vendor memos for individual vendors using full text-editing capabilities. Flag selected vendor memos to automatically pop up during data entry programs, enabling you to see your most critical information.

Vendor Masterfile Audit

Audit the changes, deletions, or additions that are made to the vendor masterfile.

Business Alerts

Business Alerts is a separate module that monitors your Sage 100 ERP database and can send email notifications to appropriate staff, customers, or vendors based on specific business events. Available predefined Accounts Payable alerts include: invoice exceeds the specified dollar amount, a discount over the specified amount is due to expire, invoices past 90 days due, and check exceeds a specified amount.
