The Duplicates by VIN report shows invoices that have both the same VIN and the same service so that you can see if any service was done for the same vehicle more than once.
For example, if there are two invoices with the same VIN and the same two services, the report will show four records:
Invoice 1, Service A
Invoice 2, Service A
Invoice 1, Service B
Invoice 2, Service B
Note By default, the period within which invoices with the same VIN and service are reported is 120 days; however, you can change the reporting period.
On the Company tab, click Company Info; on the Company Settings tab, click the Duplicates by VIN History box, and then click the appropriate period from one month to one year.
