JBA/GEAC (at the time) created customer modifications at Harvard Industries
for what you are suggesting.  I've personally seen functionality like this
work a 2 different companies with many undesirable results however.       

Provided we are talking the same Tax ID, I highly recommend a single AP/GL
company configuration.  PO/Receipts can remain individual by PM/IN company.
There are only a few draw backs like shared ledger codes (Plant A can use
Plant B ledger codes on a PO) and identification (no split AP reporting by
individual plant).  These can be corrected with less than major
modifications.  Don't forget 1099's need to be calculated by Tax ID so it is
imperative to keep the AP tied to a taxable entity.         

The pluses greatly out way the negatives: single Vendor Master, Check Runs,
1099's, Ledger, closing module (GL/CS/AP), each PM company can use the SAME
vendor #, etc.     

If you can, bite the bullet and switch to this configuration.

Subject: [SYSTEM21] Question on AP

Dear List,

 

We have 4 active company codes in S21 representing 4 sites. These sites
have common suppliers. My question is, does anyone know of a way such
that payments to these common suppliers can be consolidated to one
company code? Considering receipts are per site?
