items hit wrong G/L entry

Posted on by 39


One of users created items in wrong category.

It causes wrong accumulation on wrong G/L account.

Unfortunately there are wrong direct cost posted.

Item inventory setting is corrected but wrong entries are still remained in wrong G/L.

so current wrong G/L entries are,

2110 - Purchase order: +1000.00

2110 - Production order: -150.00

2110 - Production order: -100.00


I like to change them to,

2150 - Purchase order: +1000.00

2150 - Production order: -150.00

2150 - Production order: -100.00


Is there any way that I can adjust all?

Thank you.

    Adding to other experts you need to use general journal and post corrective transaction (positive / negative). Also in general journal you can see "corrective" which you can mark to indicate this was corrective transaction.

    Hi, as Akash said, you cannot delete G/L entries, you can only adjust it with a new entries.

    PS: It can actually be done at the development level, but you should not delete your G/L entries, because not only G/L entries are generated when posting, you will have some problems with your system and audit later.

    Hope this will help.

    You can not change the posted general ledger entries. But if you want to adjust the cost then you can post a general journal for adjustment. No other option available.
