NetSuite Sync Error: Value for Category was either blank or invalid


 Value for Category was either blank or invalid


This error occurs when the "category" field in NetSuite is a required field for a vendor. 


Make sure the category field option is not mandatory in your default vendor form in Netsuite. You can find this in NetSuite:

  1. Customization > Forms > Entry forms > locate the preferred Vendor Entry form and click Edit
  2. Click on the Fields tab, then click on the Information sub-tab and uncheck the box in the Mandatory column for Category


If the mandatory field must be enabled, create vendors in NetSuite and let them sync into
