The last part of the process is the Credit Memo reconciliation. The supplier has received books back from you, and has sent you a credit memo, which you need to compare to the RRA you sent out to the supplier. This process will be highly familiar if you're used to invoicing.
In fact, if we were all taking the SAT together,
Ready? Let's do it.
Credit Memo SearchThis is the search page. Pretty standard. Use it to look up the RRA that you want to reconcile, by RRA number, Supplier, Return Date, or any other field or combination of fields.
This is what your search results will look like if you haven't yet created a credit memo. You can see an RRA that's available, but no Credit Memo #, no lines, etc.
Whether you're creating a new or editing an existing credit memo, click on the relevant search result to move forward.
Credit Memo Reconciliation
This might look familiar as well: it's your good old RRA, in a new screen with new functionality. You'll notice that there's "No Credit Memo" active in this picture.
The purpose of this page is to allow you to create a digital document of the paper copy credit memo that the supplier sent to your store, and then to reconcile the two together.
Each RRA gets its own Credit Memo. Click Add Credit Memo to move forward.
Let's go through this data field by field:
