HEAD OFFICE PAYMENT

I deal with a number of chains and some of them like to send me one cheque that pays invoices from different stores.
Is there anyway, in 'Receive Payment' that I can apply a cheque to 2
different customers OR is there somway that I can connect groups of customers that are part of a chain to accomdate this.
I think I may have posted a Q similar to this before and not gotten anywhere, so I thought I'd try again.
The only way I've been able to do it is apply partial payment (with a note to that effect) to each invoice directly, but that screws up my ability to use discounts and propper cash flow timing.
Thx,
A

Can't you do this by making the chain the customer and all the locations jobs?

Depending on your version you could also set them up all as one customer, with multiple ship-to addresses with each ship-to being a separate store. I have found this much better to work with than the Job for each since moving to QB2006 Prem: M &W. I used to use one Job for each branch under a main customer method. However, if you ever deal with credits with your customers, it gets a little messy. Trying to apply credits for one of the branches when deducted off of a check/payment from which no payments were received from that particular branch, doesn't work very well with the one job per branch method. If you never get returns/credits however, it would probably work great for you.
That was a wordy mess, hope you understood that.

that sounds good. I'll give that a shot, as basically that is exactly what I have; 1 cust, multi shipping locations

if you set up the customers as Jobs of a main customer, its very easy. I do this all the time. Say Nynex is a customer of mine but i am doing several projects for them. I invoice each project under its own identification #. When i receive the check, i go to Nynex and all the jobs are listed. You have to have about version 2004 or better i think. It definitly(sic?) was not available on earlier versions
