Reconciled bill payment was coded and paid from wrong vendor account. If I try to change it, it puts reconciliation out of balance. How do I correct?

I can show you how to correct this without messing up your reconciliation, nclayson.

 

You can unreconcile this transaction first, link the bill payment to the correct vendor, and then manually reconcile the transaction again.

 

To unreconcile:

  1. Click Accounting on the left panel.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Select the appropriate account for this transaction.
  4. From the Action column, select View register.
  5. Find the bill payment.
  6. In the reconcile status column (indicated by a check mark), repeatedly select the top line of the transaction to change the status. Make sure that the status field is blank.
  7. Click Save.

Then, open the bill payment, correct the vendor account, and then click Save & Close. Once done, you can follow these steps to manually reconcile it:

  1. Follow steps 1 to 5 above.
  2. In the reconcile status column (indicated by a check mark), repeatedly select the top line of the transaction to change the status back to R (reconciled).
  3. Click Save.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
