Mariano Gomez created a new Microsoft Connect suggestion: get rid of the word Checks (or Cheques) from the Payables payment windows.

  • Select Payables Checks -> Build Payments Batch
  • Edit Payables Check Batch -> Edit Payment Batch
  • Edit Payables Check ->    Edit Vendor Payment
  • Print Payables Checks -> Print Payment Documents
  • Post Payables Checks -> Post Payment Documents
