In the grid at the bottom of the window, move to each transaction effected by this payment and enter the amount in the Allocated column of the grid. The Allocate amount cannot be more than the Outstanding amount shown next to each transaction. If you simply want to allocate this transaction against the oldest transactions in the system, click the Allocate To Oldest button.


Click the Save button to complete the payment. You won't be able to click the Save button until the payment is fully allocated.
