Premier Edition accountants 2014 updated 2017 when I enter a invoice for a supplier it takes me to input all items and go to save then it informs me there is a duplicate.  Why does it not inform me as soon as the invoice number is inputted as MYOB does.

Hi Irene,

Thanks for your feedback.  Unfortunately until you Save the entire invoice nothing is recorded, so the program has no way to know there is a duplicate at the point of entering it.  This is by design, but I'm happy to enter this a feature request on future releases.

When entering an AP invoice how do you overwrite the Bill number?  Ive been entering the invoice number in the reference area but it doesnt flag when its a duplicate?!  :-(
