    Title:
    Reverse a Journal
    Summary:
    An adjustment journal has been entered to revise charge account information. However, the journal has been entered and posted but now we realize that a mistake was made in the charge account
    Content:

    An adjustment journal has been entered to revise charge account information. However, the journal has been entered and posted but now we realize that a mistake was made in the charge account. We need to be able to reverse this journal and then upload the corrected adjustment.

    Reversible Details says "Not Reversible - Reversal Information is not available".

    There are no reversible details because this is not an auto-reverse journal it's just a manual journal with a mistake in it.

    Version:
    Revision 13.18.10 (11.13.18.10.0)

      Hi Sarah,

      This could just be because the reversal period isn't specified, which you can specify by going to Navigator>Journals>Manage Journal>search and open>'Show More' next to Journal>Reversal tab>specify reversal period>save and re-attempt to reverse.

      Hope that helps.

      To add, Reversal Period doesn't mean the journal gets reversed, it just allows you to reverse in that period if and when you select the "Reverse"  Menu option.  I found this a little confusing.  

      So if you don't populate the Reversal period, you can never reverse the journal. 

      That's my understanding.

      To add to all previous comment, in R13, after adding reversal period, you must first save to be able to reverse.

      Populating Reversal details like "Reversal Period" and "Reversal Method" under "REVERSAL" tab at JE Header level should help you reverse the journal when you select the option "Reverse" from the Action Menu.

      Revers the original journal in same period and create anew one in same period to correct the issue.

       

      Hope this helps :)

      If there are any secondary Ledgers, you need to repeat these steps there also.
