When I search VCUST using the last 4 digits of the Vendors TIN, it populates a lot of vendor records, why?

The search needs to be narrowed. To narrow a search, also populate in the search box the Vendor Legal Name (with the wild card "*" before and after), Vendor status field as "Active" in addition to the last 4 digits of Taxpayer Identification Number.

There is a job aid on the Central Management Processes website that can walk you through this process. To view this job aid, click here.
