Many Dynamics GP AP users complain about seeing old fully applied documents on the check stubs as they print a check for a vendor. What these users might not know, however, is that solving this common complaint is as easy as processing an old fully applied document through a regular check batch and posting it as a $0 batch before you actually print a live check.

In this blog, we’ll show you how you can easily process fully applied documents for vendors in Dynamics GP.

  1. Go to Purchasing, select Transactions, and then click Checks
  2. Create a batch and save it.
  3. Enter the Vendor ID range (that you want to process fully applied docs) and hit Insert
  4. Check off ‘Print Previously Applied Documents’
  5. Click Build Batch
    gp-select-payables-checks
  6. Wait until the Batch Total is no longer zero, then click Edit Check.
    gp-edit-check
  7. Use the second arrow on the bottom left to scroll to the correct record. Be sure to check that the proper vendor ID is showing.

  8. Click Apply
    gp-apply
  9. Uncheck any invoices that have been applied and hit OK
    gp-applied-invoices
  10. Click on Check Stub
    gp-edit-payables-checks
  11. Make sure only the previously applied documents are checked off and Check Amount says $0.00
  12. Then hit OK
    gp-payables-check-stub-documents
  13. Click Print Checks
    gp-print-checks
  14. Select Save
    gp-save-payment-changes
  15. Make sure that the Batch Total is $0.00
  16. Change Check Number to something like ‘APPLY-VendorID’, as seen in the example below.
    gp-print-payables-checks
  17. Hit the Print button which will take you directly to Post Payables Checks window.
  18. Hit Process
    gp-post-payables-checks
  19. Click on Post
  20. Hit Process
    gp-process-payables-remittance
  21. Select Continue
    gp-continue
  22. Print/Cancel any reports
    gp-print

You’re Done!

As you can see below, the next time you create a check batch for this vendor, those $0 documents won’t appear on the stub.

This method is much easier than being forced to scroll through each vendor record and uncheck any open invoices before proceeding with a $0 batch to the Print Payables Checks window. Ultimately, this fix will save you and your vendors from a lot of potential confusion.
