4 Replies and 2521 Views Vendors with no activity  2521  4 Started by  jacobske We are trying to clean up our vendor master, In doing so we want to find vendors with no activity. I see there is no canned Lawson report for this - but in trying to create in crystal, we are a multi company facility - and using the APVENBAL table isnt proving to be that easy to use b/c it shows Last Payment date. I am sure there is a way to do this - but I am not a crystal expert by any means - so if anyone has done something similar to this, any information is greatly appreciated!
