It could be one of 2 things. Start by going to the Help - About Farm Works and type the letter P on your keyboard. This will reset the Payable and Receivable files. Then check the Bill button from the Items Purchased section of the Record Payment/Purchase screen. If it does not show then, I suspect that you have 2 Names setup for the same Vendor. To check this, go to Accounting-Names and Addesses-Add/Edit Address List. Check the box to Show All Categories and Show Retired. Scroll through the entire list looking for duplications. If you do find duplicates, then Highlight first Vendor name and select Properties, Full and Sorted Name boxes add the letter Z to front of name. Go to the Category Tab to make sure the Pay To/Buy From is checked. Go to the second (same Vendor) and highlight and click Propeties. Once again select he Category Tab and make sure the Pay To/Buy From box is checked. Now go back to the Record Payments and Purchases and select one Vendor at a time until we find which one has the payable bills saved to. Once you know which Vendor has the Payables the other one can be Retired.
