A/B - Duplicate entries

B_Sternal

Member
We are finally going to address the issue of duplicate entries in our A/B. I would like to know how others have approached this issue. We have many vendors that have been duplicated and used, to the extent that it has become hard to tell which one is the original correct entry. How have you approached resolving this and can you tell me what the pitfalls are. Can or should I try to combine several into one entry. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Doing a "True" clean up of the address book is something no one ever wants to do. Many Reports can be run to check for duplicate Names Addresses etc But if no one will spend the time to look at them then there is not much you can do.

I guess what I am saying is- A Pitfall could be not getting enough time from the "People who Know" the vendors/customers.

we wrote a program that will merge any two vendors into one, including all
history, in any files anywhere, even custom ones. For World only. We even
put in roll back in case you really didn't want to merge them.

Robert;
Any chance I could take a look at that program? It sounds
like the magic bullet I'm looking for.

Re: RE: A/B - Duplicate entries

I would also like to see this program.
Perhaps you could post it up at the JDEList web site??
