QB Issue Resolution:
Thanks for posting your question in the Community. I can help with invoicing your supplier that’s now a customer.
Currently, QuickBooks Online will only allow an invoice to be attached to a customer or project. In addition, if you enter in a name that’s already being used elsewhere in the product, such as entering a customer name that’s being used as a supplier, then you will receive an error message. The following article contains additional insight on this: Error: The Name Supplied Already Exists. Another Customer, Vendor, or Employee is Already Using This….
One solution that many users have adopted is to marginally change the name of the customer/supplier. An example of this is to include the middle initial or to simply include a period in the Middle name section when adding a supplier or customer.
@Anonymous has a thread in the Community about this that I recommend looking at: Community Question: Duplicate Name Limit – How to Create Accounts for Vendors Who are Also Customers.
I hope that you have a great rest of your day. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
