Be Consistent in Terms, Problem Term "STATUS"

Status is used in at least two very different ways.

A Customer Invoice, Vendor Bill both have a "STATUS" related to payment status, Unpaid, Partially Paid and Fully Paid.

However, there is also the Accounting "STATUS". This is a very different piece of information related its Posting Status to the GL, but because of the use of the same term/field causes initial confusion and frustration.

Please find and use a clear field name that will not be confused for these statuses.
