How do I un-apply a credit memo from an invoice?

I am trying to unapply part of a credit memo (applied to several different invoices) and re-apply to the correct invoice.  I followed the below instructions, per a previous question/answer, but the credit is not listed in the "Previously Applied Credits" window.  Therefore, I cannot unapply this way.  Any other suggestions?  Since it was applied to several different invoices, it would not be timely to delete, recreate and apply the credit (overpayment).  Please help!  Thanks

There's no Mac QB version in Canada, so it's unlikely there will be help in this Canadian community.

You are listed as following it.  If so, you should be able to "unfollow" (beside the original question).

How do I un-apply a credit memo from an invoice?

But if the credit was already applied to the wrong invoice on a payment for multiple invoices, how do I show paying the original invoice in full and applying the credit to the correct invoice, both of which were paid on the same check?  Thank you!

This may be an inelegant solution, but I often go to one of the documents where I want to make the changes, i.e. invoice, bill, etc.  I change the name to the next name in the dropdown list and save.  A message comes up and says that previous payments or credits will be unapplied.  Save anyways.  Then immediately change the name back to the correct name.  Any payments or credits that were previously applied to that document are not any longer, and you can apply things the way you want.  Works for me :)

Rochelley , Not sure if you'll get this message, but if you do, THANK YOU! Your "inelegant solution" was brilliant! For years I've been trying to figure a way around this issue.

THANK YOU!!! My previous applied credits weren't showing up either, I did what you suggested, and it worked perfectly!
