Can you change suppliers on item lists

Hi Everyone

This may be a stupid question, but can you change suppliers on already created items.

We have a range of products that we were buying from one supplier and had issues with them only after a few months, so we have changed to a new supplier, supplying exactly the same items??

Is this "correct" accounting practice or not???

Thanks for any input.

Cheers

Lindy

Re: Can you change suppliers on item lists

Hi @LindyMH

If it were me I would change suppliers is you can get a better deal.

 

However I don't know if this is the answer you are looking for?

 

Not knowing your exact problem I would say that what you will need to do is to make the old supplier inactive and then put the new supplier's details in.

 

Best regards

Re: Can you change suppliers on item lists

Hi @LindyMH

 

You will need to create a new supplier card.

Then go into each item you currenty purchase from Supplier Old and change on the Buying Details Tab the Primary Supplier for Reorder to the New Supplier and Update the Supplier Item Number if applicable.

If you have a lot of items to change you can always export out the Item List.

Open in Excel
Sort by the Old Supplier
Delete All the other items.

Find and Replace the Old Suppler Card Name with the New Supplier

Save as CSV File and Import Items back into AR.

 

REMEMBER TO BACKUP BEFORE REIMPORTING.

 

I am happy to help if you not sure on how to exit the exported item list in Excel.

 

Regards

Andrew
