Problem: Handling Down Payments in Invoicing(Ver 8) I take a down payment and enter it with reference & $amt. When 2nd one & last comes in. I enter it, but it doesn't add to first amount. PT only seems to be a 1 payment system. My solution is to create another invoice like 2133 and 2133a.
Is there a workaround?

We are still in Vs 7 so you will have to check to see if this will work in Vs 8 but here is how we handle down payments.

We enter them in Receipts as pre-payments using the check # as the Reference #. Once the Invoice is entered, we go back to receipts and "apply" the pre-payment to the Invoice. You can apply several pre-payments to the invoice or if the payment is received after the invoice is entered; the payment is applied directly to the invoice (which you are probably already doing).

I hope this helps.

I'm confused, do you have three down payments or one downpymnt and 2 installments?

We have 3 payments which can then been applied to 1 invoice.

Should have read my reply better before posting. It should read:

We have 3 payments which can be applied to one invoice.
