Why isnt there a drop down to the "account" box when inputting a new vendor? Will it link to all "materials" if I just type it in? Or will it make a new "materials" acct

Good day, ejc007.

 

Thanks for connecting with us in the Community. Let me share some insights about adding a vendor. 

 

In QuickBooks Online (QBO), the feature to automatically add an account to vendor transactions is currently unavailable on the Vendor Information page. As a workaround, you can associate a product or item to your preferred vendor.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click on the Gear icon and choose Products and Services.
  2. Select New.
  3. Choose Inventory, Non-inventory, or Service.
  4. Enter some necessary information.
  5. Choose a vendor in the Preferred Vendor drop down.
  6. Click on Save and close.

I've attached some screenshots, so you'll know what I'm referring to.

To learn more, you can refer to this article: Add a preferred vendor and create a purchase order using that preferred vendor.

 

This should point you in the right direction. Please let me know if you have further questions. I'll be right here to help. Have a great day.
