    Help-Invoice Numbers in the Nominal Ledger
    We have a recently transfered over to Sageline 50, but when using the invoicing system, and updating to ledger, nowhere does it appears to copy the invoice number over as the Ref.

    This means we can never find out which invoice, on either the Customers screen, or on on the Nominal COde is for what without going through every invoice for that customer.

    The other problem has been, is there any way of when Invoice post to the Nominal Ledger for it to tell you which supplier it relates, without having to type it in the Details section of the supplier invoice everytime.

    Did you ever get aresponse on this?


    I moved from quickbooks and In am horrified at how difficult the market leader is to work with. The example you have given is a case in point. Why wouldnt you want to see the supplier in the nominal. Its more use than the actual decription most times. Maybe we are barking up the wrong tree and wev should export everythingto Excel for analysis. Sounds likev a backward step.

    i have invoiced a company for works to commence £24000.00 , the finance company were delaying in payment which meant we had to stall getting parts ect, so the manager transferred the £24000.00 in to our bank account as a loan , then 2 weeks later the finance company transferred the £24k which i have allocated the invoice too, but how do i enter the loan money on to sage and how do i show it has now gone back to the manager?

    The loan from the manager (I assume is the owner/director) should really go to the directors loan account, not the invoice.

    The subsequent payment from the customer should be allocated against the invoice.

    And the manager then repaid from the directors loan account.
