bill pay

As the sole proprietor I some time pay bills owed by the company with personal funds. I have been doing a general ledger account entry to accounts payable and owners equity respectively. But it does not post to the vendor directly, only to accounts payable. How do I get it to post to the vendor and thus accounts payable.

You need to create a bill from the vendor before you can record a payment for the bill, regardless of the source of the funds used for the payment.

@ burcon
As Lorin said enter the bill first

the you select accounts payable as the account to debit, and select the vendor name in the name column

then you use pay bills select the bill and apply the credit

Apparently that's what I've been doing. When I went to the vendor I see that the entries are posting to the vendor.
Who knew.
Thanks so much Everyone. It's good to know where you can go for help or check if your doing it right.
