  • Vendor ID
  • Vendor Name
  • Vendor Class

To change the search configuration, select SmartFill Objects (Administration area page » Setup » SmartFill » SmartFill Objects). Scroll down and locate the Vendors in the list; select it and click OK:

SmartFill Objects

Click Save to save the changes and close the window.

Vendor Maintenance

The SmartFill window will popup filtered to vendors any of the four lookup criteria fields containing SYDNEY:
