To generate payment suggestions

  2. Select the appropriate journal batch, and then choose the Suggest Vendor Payments action.

  3. On the Suggest Vendor Payments EB page, fill in the fields as described in the following table.

    Field Description
    Last Due Date Enter the last due date that can appear on the vendor ledger entries to be included in the batch job.
    Take Credit Memos Select to include outstanding credit memos for vendors. The credit memos will be subtracted from the amount due. When selecting credit memos, the due date is not used.
