Over a year ago (in 2020) we did a currency revaluation, however, there was an issue where we accidentally revalued an account that should not have been included in the revaluation. I am wondering if we can simply delete the Journal Entry from 2020 and then redo 'Revalue Currency' by selecting the old date?
You're on the right track, kucak.
You can simply delete the home currency adjustment journal entry. Then re-run the Revalue Currency procedure. To prevent a repeated incident, please double-check that you've picked the correct date.
I've added the following articles below for more information in managing Multi-currency features:

Just to clarify, if I do a "Revalue Currency" and select a date from 2020, will it create the new Journal Entries based on the account balances at the "specified" date (i.e. not the current account balances)?
Hello there, @kucak. Thanks for getting back here.
If you need to change the date or the exchange rate, you'll have to delete the journal entry and run the currency revaluation again.
And, yes, this will create new journal entries based on the account balances to what date you've selected. Since you'll be working in the year 2020, probably, your book is already closed.
You'll have to ensure that you have your book opened to do the revaluation of the currency. I highly recommend consulting your accountant to ensure your data and accounts will remain accurate after the process of revaluation.

Hi there, JacqueR.
I'm here to make sure you'll be able to delete the transaction or change the date in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
I''d like to make sure that we are on the same page so I can help you out with your concern. Can you send me back the error message you're getting since the screenshot is unclear? This way, I'll be able to provide an accurate solution to your concern.
In the meantime, we can perform some troubleshooting steps to fix the issue. There are times when the browser is full of frequently accessed pages, thus causing some of the system's unusual responses. You can isolate this by logging in to your QBO account using a private browser (incognito).
Here are the shortcut keyboards:

Thank you for the response. The message that I am getting is below
QuickBooks automatically creates currency revaluation journal entries with zero values so you can check the date and exchange rate you used. You can no longer edit these entries. The best place to check your exchange gains/losses is on the Profit & Loss, Balance Sheet, or Customer/Supplier Balance reports.
Shows that the entries cannot be edited.
