How can I sort the Bill numbers numerically within each vendor in "Pay Bills"?

Currently, I can sort By Payee, Daye, Number, Etc. I would like to sort by Vendor, but within each vendor, I would like to pay the bills in the numeric order as that is how they match the vendor's statement.

Let me share some information, Regalkit.

 

You're right. The bills are listed in the order that they're created per vendor. 

 

You'll want to filter it to show the transactions of the specific vendor. This way, you can easily select the first $20,000 worth of bills. Here's how:

  1. Click Filter on the Pay Bills page.
  2. Under Payee, select the vendor.
  3. Click Apply

Feel free to check the articles provided by my colleague at the top to guide you.

 

If there's anything else that you need, don't hesitate to let us know. We'll reply as soon as we can. Take care!

Hi regalkit!

 

There's a better way to see the list of bills by the vendor and sort them by bill numbers. Let me help you.

 

Please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Expenses tab and select Vendors.
  2. Select the vendor's name. From the Filter drop-down, choose Open bills under Type and All dates under Date.
  3. Tap Apply. You'll see a list of the open bills. Simply click the No. column header to sort them by bill number.

 

In addition, you can pay the bills by vendor. Here's how:

  1. On the Pay bills page, click the Filter button.
  2. Select the vendor under the Payee drop-down.
  3. Tap Apply

 

Then, by default, the result is filtered based on when they are created. You can also click the Ref No. column header to sort them by bill number.

How can I sort the Bill numbers numerically within each vendor in "Pay Bills"?

Hi,

Thank you for your response, but I am aware of that. It's just that when I go to "pay bills" and I have 50 bills from one vendor I would that are not listed in bill numerical order. I assume they're listed in the order that they were entered. So if I wanted to pay $20,000.00 towards the first twenty thousand dollar bills of the said vendor, I'm not able to do it. When I click on top of the columns I either get vendor order or numerical order disregarding the vendor and it's one big mess. I hope I explained my issue clearly. Thank you!
