How do I undelete a bank transaction - thrown rec out

QuickBooks Team


Hi Lorraine10, You can not undelete something, However, you can recreate it if it is something that should not have been deleted.  It is a case of viewing the deletion and then creating the transaction, you can either do that by clicking on fix this on the balance reconcile history error or going to the cog>audit log>filter by events>transactions>deleted transactions. You would then need to add the transaction back into the reconcile(if you need help on that just reply back to this thread). If it is a transaction that should be deleted it would be a case of an accountant user undoing the reconcile.

@EmmaM thank you. I can see the transaction but not how I can add back into reconcile.  Please advise.







Hello there, lorraine10.


Thanks for getting back to us. Glad to hear that you're able view the deleted transactions.


Adding transactions back into the reconcile is the same process when adding a regular transaction. You can either create those transactions by clicking the +New button or directly make them in the Chart of Accounts (COA). Here's how:


  1. Go to the +New button.
  2. Select the type of transaction you want to create.
  3. When you create a payment, make sure to deposit or assign it to the correct account.
  4. Then, save it.


Another way is going through the steps below:


  1. Go to Accounting on the left panel.
  2. Within the Chart of Accounts tab, select an account.
  3. From there, you can add the deleted transaction again by clicking the drop-down arrow under the Date column.
  4. Select a type of transaction and record it.
  5. Click Save.
