Suppliers: Supplier Records Transfer Selection

Supplier Records Transfer Selection

Supplier Records Transfer Selection

When you attempt to delete a supplier and it is referenced by some other data record such as a Purchase Order, you will be prevented from deleting it immediately and will be given the opportunity of transferring all related records to an alternate supplier.

If you cancel, you will be provided with an explanatory message as to why the deletion was not possible.

Warning WARNING: Great care should be taken of this feature. Confirming a transfer will move all related records for the supplier into the selected transfer supplier. Records transferred in this way will appear to have always belonged to the transfer supplier. You will not be able to subsequently identify them from records previously belonging to the transfer supplier. The system does however stamp a note onto the comments of the transfer supplier.

If a Supplier is referenced by history, and you want to prevent its use for Requests for Quotations and Purchase Orders you can do this by setting the Do not use control on the supplier record.
