Alternate Allocation Match Option

Datafile Software

Alternate Allocation Match Option

When importing sales ledger or purchase ledger payment transactions the option exists for the imported payment transaction to record a reference which, if matched to a sales / purchase invoice reference, will automatically allocate the payment against the invoice. The new feature allows you to nominate an alternate data item on the sales / purchase ledger invoice record to be matched against instead of the invoice reference.
