Use the Assignments window to manually assign transactions to a bill receivable, remove transactions from a bill receivable, and review assigned transactions. You can assign and unassign transactions to a bill until the bill is completed or, for bills that require acceptance, until the bill is accepted.
You can manually assign any class of transaction to a bill except guarantees. You can also assign a bill that has a status of Unpaid to a new bill receivable.
By default, you can only assign transactions that belong to the drawee and its related customers. If you set the Receivables system option Allow Payment of Unrelated Transactions to Yes, you can assign transactions of unrelated customers.
You can assign full or partial transaction amounts to a bill. The unassigned portion of a transaction remains an open item. If you designated a maximum amount for the bill, you can only assign transactions up to the designated maximum amount. You cannot complete a bill receivable with a designated maximum amount until the bill is fully assigned.
Note: Bills receivable assignments follow the natural application rule, even though the individual transactions assigned to the bill may allow for overapplication. You can only assign transactions that have the same currency as the bill receivable. Transactions assigned to the bill must share the same functional exchange rate. The bill inherits the exchange rate from the
transactions assigned to it when you complete the bill. If you want to assign transactions with a different currency, you must uncheck any transactions already assigned to the bill and enter the new currency in the Currency field.
