My payables will not clear the payables ledger even though they show up on the bank account when I do the reconciliation.
It is only happening with 1 vendor and there is a year's worth of invoices that, although paid, are still on the payable ledger.
I'm here to help point you in the right direction, @ValJoy.
In QuickBooks Desktop, we have an accounting tool that will simplify this task. However, this is only available if you're using an accountant's edition.
The Fix Unapplied Vendor Payments and Credits tool can help link your payables and clear the balance on your A/P Aging report.
If this tool is not available, please refer to this article for the given solutions that can fix your payable balance: Bill shows as unpaid after writing a check.
That should do it. You may also check this related article should you need to delete bill transactions in the future: Void or delete a bill or bill payment check.
Please don't hesitate to let me know if you should need further assistance with your AP balance or any other QuickBooks topic. I'm always here to help. Have a good one.
