How to change the date on a bank reconciliation
If the bank reconciliation has not been closed you should see a delete option at the bottom of the reconciliation. The delete option will allow you to restart the reconciliation process.
To change the date on a closed bank reconciliation it will need to be re-opened, deleted, and reentered. Depending on the permissions that your administrator has assigned to your login, you may have the ability to delete your bank reconciliation or you may need to ask your Church Administrator or diocese to do so for you.
A bank reconciliation report may help you when reprocessing the bank reconciliation.
- Print the report. Reports → Transactions → Bank Reconciliation Report
- In the newly dated Bank Reconciliation process, use select all then uncheck any uncleared items using the report and the bank statement as your guide.
Review the bottom of the bank reconciliation screen to see what permission you have.
Please note: When you delete the current bank reconciliation, none of your deposits, checks, or journal entries will be deleted, even if you entered them after starting the bank reconciliation.
If a bank reconciliation was reopened:
If you entered service charges or interest when you were processing the bank reconciliation and reconciled the bank account a journal entry was created to record service charges and/or interest . When you open the replacement reconciliation you will not enter these items. You will need to edit the date on the journal entry to the date of the new bank reconciliation.
