Contacts: Set default account code

I would like to link my contacts cards with specific account numbers in my chart of accounts. I can do this in my normal MYOB can it be done in MYOB Live?

    It would be great to allocate a usual or default expense account to a supplier.

      Spend Money & Bills – you can’t allocate an account code to that supplier/creditor.  This would save data entry time.

      I totally agree- this will help the ease of use for this package

  • Not sure which version you are using but it's still there as before.


    Drill down into your card.


    Choose the tab at the top saying SELLING DETAILS (or BUYING DETAILS)


    Choose your GL account in the field saying INCOME ACCOUNT or EXPENSE ACCOUNT.


    Job done :smileyhappy:

Julie_B, it sounds like you're talking about AccountRight, this is the LiveAccounts Ideas Exchange and these two programs are a bit different.
