If you make a mistake when recording a check, you can go back and make a change to the check.
Editing checks automatically creates journal entries in your General Ledger.
- From the home page, find the check you need to edit. Click the check name to open the transaction window.
- Make the required changes.
- Enter the Amendment Memo.
- Click the “Save” button.
- A message will appear to notify you that your edit is complete.
Note: Once a check has been edited, a small triangle denoting the change will appear next to the amount on the home page. Clicking that triangle will show the change that was made to the transaction.
Note: Once a check has been marked as printed in the print queue screen, the check can no longer be edited. If you discover a problem with the check after marking it as printed, you will need to void the check and reenter it. You also cannot edit a check that has been cleared by the reconciliation or that is in a previous fiscal year that has been locked. If the check has been cleared or is in a previously locked fiscal year, you can use a journal entry to make the correction.
