See: Voucher Transaction: Payment below for payment details.

Voucher Transaction: Create From Template

Voucher templates are used to pre-fill the voucher distribution details when creating a new voucher. Multiple templates can be saved for each vendor.

To create a voucher template, enter the voucher details, and select Template. Enter a name for the template, and select Ok. (This will not create a voucher, only the template.)

See: Voucher Transaction: Sample Voucher Templates.

After a template has been created, enter a Vendor Code, then select the Voucher Template from the next drop-down.


Modify any values and verify the date and description. Select Save when finished.

Voucher Transaction: Payment

When a voucher is created, the Agency Systems will automatically prompt to pay now, pay later, or pay multiple.


Select Pay Now to create a regular or wire check to pay a single voucher. Enter the check details, and select OK.


Select Pay Multiple to create a regular or wire check to pay multiple vouchers for the same vendor. Select the desired vouchers, enter the check details and select Apply.


Voucher Transaction: Delete

A voucher can be modified or deleted if voucher payable date general ledger month is open, and if no payments are attached. (Requires Security System: AP -> Voucher Transaction -> Global)

To remove a payment from a voucher, first load the voucher list on the Vendor tab. Expand the voucher and left-click on the payment to open the check transaction. Select Void to remove the voucher payment.

After all payments are removed, simply select Delete on the Voucher Transaction toolbar.
