Currently, the expense module contains the object "Merchants", represented by the table TrvExpMerchant.

Additionally, DFO has the object "Vendor", represented by the table VendTable, and used in a variety of processes in Purchase, General ledger and more.

These two objects refer to the same exact business objects of the real life: external parties that deliver services and incur costs and liabilities; a hotel, a restaurant and so on. There is, regrettably, no integration between them. I cannot convert a merchant to a vendor, nor can I define a vendor as a merchant. Mainaining master data would mean double effort.

These objects should be either merged or there should be some level of integration, preferrably VendTable being the leading entity.
