A/R Debit Note Entry is different from Sales Debit Note though they are both involving debtors:
- A/R Debit Note Entry (upon save) will automatically update the related G/L accounts; Sales Debit Note (upon save) will post automatically (depends on option setting) the entries to A/R Debit Note Entry and update the related G/L accounts.
