1. How Does EDI Work?

EDI is an alternative to the mailing system and fax machine to exchange information, but EDI is a much faster and a cost-effective way to do this task.

7. What Is a Vendor Reconciliation Account in SAP?
A vendor reconciliation account is a balance sheet account found in the general ledger. This account is used to summarize the transactions found on the accounts payable sub-ledger and is also referred to as a control account.
8. What are the Benefits of vendor reconciliation account?
Using a vendor reconciliation account prevents the general ledger from being jumbled with transactions that are irrelevant to other users of the general ledger. This account serves to validate that the balance of the sub-ledger matches what is reported on the general ledger.
9. What is Vendor Master Data?
The vendor master database contains information about the vendors that supply an enterprise. This information is stored in individual vendor master records. A vendor master record contains the vendor’s name and address, as well as data such as:
- The currency used for ordering from the vendor
- Terms of payment
- Names of important contact persons (sales staff)
Subsequently, to the accounts department, vendors are generally creditors (accounts payable); the vendor master record also contains accounting information, such as the relevant control account (reconciliation account) in the general ledger.
Therefore, the vendor master record is maintained by both Accounting and Purchasing.
