  4. Run the following statement against the company database to remove the zero dollar remittances in Payables Management.
    /* The following code is used to remove zero dollar remittances for a specific vendor. */ DELETE PM20100 WHERE VendorID = 'VendorID' AND KeySourc = 'REMITTANCE'/* The following code is used to remove all zero dollar remittances. */ DELETE PM20100 WHERE KeySourc = 'REMITTANCE'
    Note In the code, the VendorID placeholder represents the actual vendor identifier.
