If multiple legal entities in your organization do business with the same vendor and each legal entity maintains a separate vendor account for that vendor, use this procedure to merge the party IDs for the vendor accounts across multiple legal entities. This enables you to make vendor payments for invoices in any of the legal entities that the vendor does business with.

  1. Click Home > Common > Global address book.

  2. Select the address book records that represent the vendor in each legal entity that you want to include in the mapping.

  3. On the Action Pane, click Merge records.

  4. Select the party ID to use for the merged address book record, and enter text that explains why you are merging the records.

  5. Click Validate to identify potential conflicts.

  6. Click OK to merge the records.

  7. Select the merged address book record that you selected the party ID for in step 4 and then expand the Relationships FactBox. The vendor account from each legal entity should be displayed.
