Voiding or correcting a checkbook Transfer (UG)


NorthScope allows voiding and correcting posted checkbook Transfer transactions provided they have not been reconciled. If they are on a Checkbook Reconciliation, the Reconciliation must first be voided. 

Select the transaction.

  1. Navigate to the transaction that is being voided.
    1. The transaction must be located from the 'Checkbook Transaction Inquiry' which can be opened from:
      1. Financial → Inquiries → Checkbook Transaction Inquiry
  2. Find and select the Transfer that needs to be voided (only one transaction can be voided at a time).
  3. Click the 'More Actions' icon in the header toolbar and select "Void or Correct" (this opens the 'Void/Correct Transaction' page). 

The 'Void/Correct Transaction' page will open showing the Transfer transaction that was selected.

      • If the source transaction was posted in an open Fiscal Period, this will default to the source transaction's Date. Otherwise, this will be blank.
