Batches dated in prior year

  • 1.  Batches dated in prior year

    Posted Oct 04, 2019 06:54 PM
    I've recently taken over a company that uses GP 2015.  There were several batches that I recovered from Batch Recovery - all contained journal entries from the prior year.  The journal entries in the batches were basically inventory adjustments of a few cents to a few dollars.

    Obviously I cannot post to a closed year, so I am not sure of the best way to clear these old batches:
    1) Delete the batch?  How do I do this?
    2) Post to the current period? How can I reset the JE's in the batch to today's date?

    I'm not worried about the financial effects of posting now or removing since the total is quite minor, so I just want to clear them in the easiest way possible.

    Thanks for any advise,
    Rick

    I would assume the entries were made with another batch at that time, and delete the old batches.
    You can delete by going to Batches under Transactions in the Financial Module. Use the magnifying glass to pull up the batch, and just hit delete.
