Maybe this is a similar situation.
I enter a purchase order and rather than pay by check, a credit card payment may be made to pay the invoice. In the past I have entered the amount on the PO, then backed it out as a - amount. That at least lets me track activity with the vendor. Then when the credit card comes in the amount will be entered along with the expense category.
Looking for a better (correct) way to do this.
Thanks for your help.
