Retrieving a Voided Transaction in QuickBooks
By Avery Martin
Transactions that are voided in QuickBooks stay on the books in case you need to locate a voided transaction for auditing purposes. You can't unvoid a transaction once it has been voided. If you need to add a voided transaction back to the register, you must first locate the original voided transaction, select it and then re-enter the transaction into the register. This keeps the voided transaction on record, along with the original and newly created transaction. Before you can re-enter a transaction, you must first locate it within your transaction history.
Voided and Deleted Transactions Summary
Launch QuickBooks and click "File" and "Open Company..." from the drop-down menu. Select the company file with the voided transaction. Click "Open."
Click "Reports," "Accountant & Taxes" and "Voided and Deleted Transaction Summary."
Click on the "Action" column to sort transactions by Action. Then, locate the voided transaction by looking through the list of items that have been voided.
Click "Search" from the drop-down menu.
Enter any information you have about the voided transaction in the Search field. You can search for a customer, transaction number, vendor, item or other record.
Click "Enter" and then select the voided transaction from the list of results.
