  • Double click on the vendor line item (line item 1).
  • Click on Environment >> Check Information
  • If check information is grayed out (not available), a cheque has not been issued yet.
  • If there is a cheque number and payment date, a cheque has been issued.
  • If there is a cheque encashment date, the cheque has been cashed by the vendor.

Why wasn't the cheque produced?

There are several situations or processing errors that will delay the cheque production or result in a chequeNOT being produced.

List of the common problems and how to resolve:

1.  The payment method was not selected for an OTA Expense Reimbursement Vendor.

  • How to correct: Document Change and populate the “Pmt Method” field.

2.  An OTA Trade Payable/Departmental Expense Reimbursement Vendor/Alternate Payee function was used and the “Street” field for the address was not populated. 

3.  Invoice date entered incorrectly (e.g. the current date or a date too far in the future was used instead of the invoice date).

4.  An OTA Trade Payable Vendor (e.g. 990001) was used instead of the OTA Departmental Expense Reimbursement Vendor, thus delaying the cheque production. Payment terms for OTA Trade Payable Vendors are 35 days compared to immediate payment for OTA Expense Reimbursement Vendors.

5.  The transaction was processed using an incorrect Vendor Group, e.g. Canadian vendor used with a USD currency.

6.  There is a debit balance on the vendor account for more than the total amount owed to the vendor.
