  • Biographical information is merged into the primary record only if the record does not already contain the data. Also, you can merge data into a blank field, but you cannot merge a blank field into a field containing data. Once the vendor records are merged you can update the primary vendor record to add or remove any incorrect information that may have transferred from the duplicate vendor record.
  • When merging records the duplicate will be deleted.
