I ran a rebuild and verify the other day that appeared to correct the issue I was having. Yesterday I went to pay a bill and noticed I now have open payables dating back to 2014! At least 1k of them. It appears the transactions have become unlinked? Any ideas?
Let's work together to fix the unapplied vendor payments, @bluesbum.
Damaged transactions will change their status when running the Verify/Rebuild tool. Just as a heads up, this tool is only available for the QuickBooks Accountant Edition and QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 16 and later versions.
For additional reference, you can check this link: Bill shows as unpaid after writing a check.
That should link back the bills and their payments, @bluesbum. Keep me posted on how it goes or if you have other questions. I'm still here to offer help.
doesn't work. lots of bills show up as unpaid in the right column but almost nothing shows up in the credit section. If I look at a bill that was paid 5 years ago, it shows paid on the bill itself but is still showing up in the pay bill screen.
Thank you for your response, @bluesbum!
