Fields

Descriptions

Account

If the Cash Management module is present, enter the bank account code or credit card account code.

Note:

Some of the field titles in this screen vary depending upon whether the Account field contains a bank account code or a credit card account code.

Check number

If the Account field contains a bank account code, enter the number of the check to be voided. Only valid check numbers are allowed. Some operations elect to install the software with an "H" automatically recorded as part of the check number (in Accounts Payable Installation or Cash Management Bank Account Maintenance). If using this feature and the check to be voided was a prepaid or manual check, type "H" followed by the check number (H stands for Hand check).

When voiding out an electronic payment, use the ‘E’ check from the Vendor Payment History. When updated, the invoices are all returned to Vendor Open items just like when voiding a payables check. You can only void E checks created in v14.16 and later.

Important:

You cannot enter the summary transaction’s ‘E’ check number to void out the total ACH/AFT transaction.
