Make sure vendor names don't have apostrophes Bookmark

In Pro Fund Accounting, including an apostrophe in the name of a vendor will have unintended side effects throughout the rest of the system.

These side effects can include:

  1. Not being able to void checks made to that vendor
  2. SQL syntax error messages appearing when working with that vendor

To help avoid any unintended side effects when working with your Accounts Payable vendors, we recommend not to include apostrophes in any of your vendor names.

If you would like to see a list of your vendors which you can look through and see if any names include apostrophes, you can run the VendList report. This report shows you the vendor code and the vendor name in a 2 column list, so you can easily scan through it and see if any vendor names have apostrophes in them. If any vendors do have an apostrophe in their name, then you can go to Vendor Maintenance and change their name to remove the apostrophe.
