Find out if a Vendor is already set up in the A/P system

In order to pay a vendor they must first be set up in the Accounts Payable system.  If you are using a vendor you have never used before they might be new to you but it is very possible they have been used by another department on campus in the past.  Try these simple steps to search the Vendor files and try to find them before starting the process of setting them up as a new vendor.
