Journal Entries to Adjust Materials

I have entered invoices from vendors as Labor and Materials.  I now have to adjust due to knowing the true costs of materials.  I would like to make a journal entry, but it does not allow it to show up under that vendor.  For example.  XYZ Company has $40,000 in labor and materials.  I need to adjust so their records show they have $28,000 in labor and $12,000 in materials.  How do I make a journal entry so it shows on their report?  It doesn't appear properly if I make the JE.

Journal Entries to Adjust Materials

Enter a bill from the vendor - zero amount if the total amount due the vendor has not changed.

Use 2 lines on the bill to increase one account and decrease the other.

Thank you! That is what I did since the JE wouldn't work.  Appreciate your response.
