Pay Category

This field is enabled only if using pay categories (flag in AP Company Parameters) and allowing entry of pay types with purchase orders (flag in PO Company Parameters).

Specify a valid pay category for this purchase order item. The pay category specified here, along with the line type (Type field), will determine the default pay type.

Initially defaults a pay category as follows:

  • If you have set up a standard or user pay category override in F3 Properties (not recommended), defaults the F3 pay category.

  • If no F3 override exists, defaults the pay category specified for the current user in VA User Profile.

  • If no override pay category is specified for the user, defaults the pay category defined in AP Company Parameters.

  • If no default pay category is defined for the company, default will be null. (In this case, the pay type will default from AP Company Parameters based on the line's type.)

May be left blank or overridden with any valid pay category.

Note: The pay category specified here will override any defaults set by F3, VA User Profile, or AP Company Parameters when the purchase order is invoiced in AP Transaction Entry.
