Change Pay Period Type on ROE

Thanks for your reply. When I created the ROE initially (I need to amend the ROE), there was an option to choose the Pay Period Type (it did not autofill based on how the Employee was already set up) so I'm hesitant to now go in and change the existing Payroll settings. Is there a way to delete the existing ROE? At least then I could start from scratch and enter the details correctly.
