1670779 - Supplier not Recognized in Scanned Supplier Invoice


You scanned a new invoice that you received from your supplier. However the supplier is not fetched in the new scanned invoice. Upon checking the master data, you can see that the supplier is maintained and active in the system.

3. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
4. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
