Dynamics Business Central How-to: Add Default Accounts to Vendors

by | Updated November 13, 2020 | Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics GP

To add default GL accounts to Vendors in Dynamics Business Central to make data entry a bit easier, assign default accounts to vendors using Standard Purchase Codes and Recurring Purchase Lines. This functionality is also available for Sales lines.

Go to the search icon and type in Recuring Purchase Lines, select Recurring Purchase Lines.
