Should you have any Open Item Creditors, an Open Item Selection screen will automatically be displayed. This screen will list all credit transactions as well as the opening balance (if any) for the creditor account you have selected in the account field for a transaction. This Open Item selection screen will be displayed in the following cases:
  1. A Debit transaction for a selected Creditor account which is set as an open item Creditor account, in the account field of a normal batch entry screen on the Input - Batch Entry menu option. This would normally be the payments journal or any other batch for which you have entered a debit transaction.

  2. Update or post documents if you generate a Goods Returned for a Creditor account, which is set as an open item Creditor account.
To Select an Open Item Transaction on the Open Item Selection screen:

The Open Item selection screen will be automatically displayed when an amount (debit transaction) is entered for a selected Open Item Creditor account in a batch or a Goods Returned document, which is updated or posted to the Ledger.
