Generated QuickBooks Bill for Buildxact Supplier Invoice PO####/###/# - Sample Supplier for $1,000.0 Tried to add vendor 'Sample Company' but QuickBooks gave the following error: Validation Exception was thrown.Details:The name supplied already exists. : Id=##.

Quickbooks clients and vendors work off the same group, this means that you cannot have the same name as a vendor as you do a contact.
Using the above example, Buildxact is trying to create Sample Company as a vendor which may already exist as a client and as such cannot be added as a vendor. A way to get around this is to update your contact in Buildxact to have a slightly different name, such as Sample Company Buildxact.
