I am trying to Merge a supplier but Reckon will not let me - it comes up with the error message 'you cant merge these names becuase there are online banking payments for this name'. There are no 'current' payments to be made but in the past both have  been paid online. How do i merge them?

thanks,

Hi 
Have you clicked into the "Online Banking Centre" (under Banking Menu) - there may be payments there.

Hi toni - no, there aren't any payments in the system waiting for this supplier - i read on a previous thread that if you have paid a supplier via the online method in the past you can not merge - I'm waiting for a reckon person to confirm if this is the case or not, because it seems strange to me.

Yes that does seem very strange - oh and just realised you use a different version of Reckon than me- hope you get some answers soon - must be very frustrating :-)

I've had the same situation occur and like you assumed that you can't merge any suppliers that have had online payments made to them. It is frustrating.

Yes that is correct, merging is not possible when online banking payments have been made. This is a limitation of the software.

Consider renaming the existing Supplier names, adding a suffix and then making it inactive.
Create a new Supplier and transfer any outstanding transactions from the original supplier names to this newly created supplier.
