This document covers the process used to manually create a vendor payment document. The check printing process in Unanet is a two-step process. First, vendor payment(s) are created. Second, the check(s) are printed. This guide will walk you through the manual approach to Step 1 (vendor payment creation). Step 2 can be found here: AP Admin Guide - Print Checks. The Vendor Payment invoice detailed here walks through the process of manually creating a single Vendor Payment. To pay multiple Vendor Invoices, please see: AP Admin Guide - Bulk Vendor Payment Creation
