How to Merge Business Partners (BP) in Sage X3

By | March 29, 2018

Many a times, the user creates 2 similar business partners in Sage X3 instead of 1 business partner, this results in 2 separate entities in all the related inquiries or reports. In such cases, Sage X3 provides BP Merge functionality which allows two BP accounts to be merged together, which will automatically transfer all the transactions/balances from one BP to another.

The BP Merge function can be used to transfer postings related to a Business Partner (Source) to another Business Partner (Destination).
