Combined two vendors now have open invoices from previous years
I am the treasurer for a small 501(c)3 and I am getting ready to turn it over to a new treasurer on June 30. I found a duplicate vendor with a miss spelling from the previous treasurer. When I combined the two vendors into one it took the two old invoices from the miss spelled vendor and now they show up on my reconciliation screen as being open. They look ok in the register but all my totals are now off by this amount and they also show up in accounts payable. The records are from 2013 and 2017. How do I get rid of them? I know I could do a journal entry to get them to balance but I don't want them to show up on the reconciliation screen and confuse the new person. All the invoices from the correctly spelled vendor are just fine.
