When I check the accounts payable item and select Pay Vendors under the process menu, I am given a Create Checks dialogue box. However, the only option is to create a check for the full amount of the invoice.

The only way I could find to make a partial payment is to enter the check directly in the Register, bypassing the Accounts Payable, and somehow keep track of the remaining payable balance. Is there any downside to doing it this way, if there's no other way to handle a partial payable payment?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

You can partially pay the vendor bill by going to vendors - open the vendor and click on history. Highlight the payable and click on the drop down arrow next to the plus sign to choose create check. When the check is up on the screen click on the paid amount. You can then change the amount and the balance will remain open.

You can also use the payflow manager to create partial payments.
