This post is part of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release New Features series where I am going to echo the posts from the Dynamics GP Support and Services Blog, while adding some commentary, on the new features introduced in the Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 Release which is now available.
This post is on the Add DBA Name field on Vendor Maintenance window for 1099 Vendors Financial enhancement.
When a business is created in the United States or Canada, they have the option of using a DBA, or "Doing Business As" name, in addition to the legal entity name; the DBA name is the operating name of the business, or how the business is known to customers, or operating name, as opposed to the legal name of the business. Vendors that have a DBA name, in addition to the legal company name, and want to have the DBA name appear on the 1099 that is issued to them, can now do so.
Add DBA (Doing Business As) field to the Vendor maintenance window, reporting and 1099s. It is common for companies to have a legal name registered but do business under another name, the name customers see. The feature enables the user of both the legal name of a company and DBA. From the Purchasing home page under Cards, choose Vendor and click Options.
Go into Purchasing, point to Cards, click on Vendor, select the Vendor ID, click on Options, enter the DBA name in the field, click OK:
By default, this was added to the following reporting:
VENDDBA column (Char, 65 in length) was added to the PM Vendor Master File (PM00200) table; this new field will be in all country installs for Microsoft Dynamics GP.
No changes were made for this new field in eConnect or Integration Manager so it cannot be populated during an import using the standard tools.
