Is there not a way to merge vendors when you have duplicated them by misspelling or adding inc or not? If not, my reports show 2 separate vendors when it’s actually the same one. Or, when I search, it doesn’t show up because it’s misspelled or something. I see we can now merge customers. Vendors?

I just found that if there are no products listed under the duplicate vendors (ones with a typo for example) it doesn't show up in the vendor list anymore when I edit/add a product. 

 

I went into one of the products that was listed under the incorrectly spelled vendor, and moved it to the correctly spelled vendor. Then, when I looked back at the product screen and selected the product vendor filter drop down, the incorrectly spelled vendor was no longer in that list.
