Payroll checks were posted to wrong checking account. How do I change to the correct account?

We can delete and recreate the paycheck, nick-regimbal4.

 

We're only able to edit a paycheck's pay period, hours and the check number. We'll have to delete and recreate the paycheck once we've submitted it. I'll show you how: 

  1. Select Workers and click Employees.
  2. From the upper-right beside the Run payroll option, click Paycheck list. If the status shows Not processed yet, we can delete and recreate the paycheck.
  3. Select the checkbox next to the pay date.
  4. Click the Delete button.
  5. Select Yes when you see the confirmation message.
  6. Go back to the Employee list and recreate the paycheck with the correct checking account.

Let me know if you need anything else. Keep safe!

I did not catch the error (wrong checking account) until the next day - the payments are all paper checks and were printed on the correct set of checks, just the information was entered into the wrong checking account. How can I change the checking account, as I do not have a delete option showing.
