The system uses information you enter for suppliers and supplier sites to enter default values when you later enter transactions for a supplier site. Most information you enter in the Suppliers window is used only to enter defaults in the Suppliers Sites window. When the system enters that information in a later transaction, it will only use supplier site information as a default, even if the supplier site value is null and the supplier has a value. If you update information at the supplier level, it will not update existing supplier sites.
When you enter a supplier, you can also record information for your own reference, such as names of contacts or the customer number your supplier has assigned to you.
