Deleted a previously reconciled transaction

I realized that I made a transfer from checking to savings in the amount of $8000.00 on 7/1/2020.

It should have been a transfer from checking to another checking account at the same bank that isn't in my Chart of Accounts (previous owner).

I usually enter it as a ACH check.

I am working on the December 2020 bank reconciliation, which I have at 0.00 difference.

If I delete the transfer and re-enter it as a ACH check to the previous owner, am I messing it up?

Do I go into the check register and mark it as cleared? 

Since I have the December 2020 reconciliation still open, will I be able to fix it right there without undoing anything?

Glad to see you again, @gloriadeb204.

 

Yes, you should mark it with an asterisk, this sign means it's uncleared. The checkmark is for the reconciled transaction.

 

After putting an asterisk you can go to the Bank Register and delete the transaction or edit it and assign it to the correct account.

 

I've added some screenshots for your reference:

Once done, you can follow this article to recreate the check if it's deleted: Reconcile previously deleted and re-entered checking or credit card transactions.

I'm here to help fix your reconciliation concern, @gloriadeb204. As an insight, any changes to your previous reconciliation will affect the balance on your register. 

 

Since the transaction was transferred to the wrong account, yes you can delete the transfer and re-enter it as an ACH check to the previous owner. Just make sure that the Date and Amount are correct. Then, ensure to go into the check register and mark it as "R" Reconciled instead of Cleared. 

 

For future reference, read through this article: Fix Reconciliation Discrepancies. It helps you learn about identifying transactions that were modified. 

 

Should you need assistance in reconciliation, please let me know. I'd be glad to help.

Thank you

For clarification, I have QB Desktop 2017.

It needs to be marked with the asterisk, not the checkmark, correct?
