Changing a Reconciled Transaction

 

Changing the Category, Memo or Details Fields:

If you need to change the category, memo or details of an already reconciled transaction:

  • Click on the Banking icon in the toolbar.
  • Next click Register under the bank account the transaction resides in.
  • Click the Edit button to the right of the transaction that needs to be edited.
  • Make your changes and click Save & Close.

Changing the Check/Reference, Date, Amount or Paid To Fields:

To change the Check/Reference #, Date, Amount or Paid To fields, you’ll need to first un-reconcile the account, going back to the month the transaction falls in. You’ll make the change, then re-reconcile.

Note: It’s helpful if you print your Reconciliation Reports prior to clearing your reconciliations. Having these handy makes it super fast to re-reconcile.

To un-reconcile:

  • Click theĀ Banking icon from the toolbar.
  • Select the bank account the transaction is found in (ex Checking).
  • Click Reconcile.
  • Click View (under Reconciliation History).
  • Click Undo Reconciliation.
  • A pop up window will appear that says, “Are you sure you want to undo this reconciliation? This cannot be undone.” Click Yes.
  • Repeat these steps until you have cleared reconciliations back to the month the transaction falls in.

Now you’re ready to change the transaction:

  • Click on the Banking icon in the toolbar.
  • Next click Register under the bank account the transaction resides in.
  • Click the Edit button to the right of the transaction that needs to be edited.
  • Make your changes and click Save & Close.

Finally, re-reconcile your account:

  • Click the Banking icon from the toolbar.
  • Click Reconcile (under the account you wish to re-reconcile).
  • Click Begin Reconciliation.
  • Step thru the process for each month, using your printed Reconciliation Reports to guide you.
