One Time Vendors

What is the process for using one time vendors? 

One time vendors can only be used for specific vendor account groups. Their is a flag for each account group in configuation for this. If one does not exist you will have to create a new vendor account group. 

To create a One Time Vendor use XK01 and select the OTV account group. 

When creating say a PO use your OTV account the transaction will prompt you for name, address etc (unlike a normal vendor). 

You experienced a problem with OTV's whereby users couldn't be bothered to create permanent vendors and just used the OTV account, so beware of that.
