The Payment Category field can be used to assign a Pay Schedule Code to a Vendor.  Then, any AP invoice added with that vendor will be assigned to that Pay Schedule Code at which point you can specify that payment code  (Payment Category field) when you Schedule AP Payments. This means that this action will only schedule payments for AP Invoices matching that Pay Schedule Code.
