Avoiding Duplicate Payment of Invoices


Last month, a vendor sent me an invoice.  I paid the invoice.  What I did not realize was that I had paid the same invoice nine months ago.  I guess I could have checked the pay history to that Vendor and seen that I paid him the same amount and investigated further but I would think QB might offer an automatic alert when entering AND paying the same invoice number twice.  
My thought is that it should alert you for both entering and payment:


"Hey, you’ve already entered this bill (invoice #)"
and also...
"Hey, you've already paid this bill (invoice #)"
Are any of you aware if these alerts exist and, if so, how to enable?

Avoiding Duplicate Payment of Invoices

Yes, you can turn on the warning for duplicate bill numbers which will help stop this from happening.  I believe it is on by default.
