Accidentally voided paycheck in previous QTR after taxes are paid.

*New QB user.*

An employee lost two paychecks and asked to have them reprinted. In the process of calling the bank to stop payment on the checks, I voided the paychecks in Quickbooks before realizing that was the wrong thing to do. The check was for the previous quarter in the previous year. Payroll taxes have already been paid and W2s have already been sent out. How do I fix this mistake?

Edit the voided check and change it, one number at a time, to the way it was before you voided it. 

 

If you don't have a copy of the paystub, use the audit trail report to see what the check looked like before it was voided.  It'll be a bit difficult because you can't see the payroll items on that report.
