I'd love it if you could open a previous journal entry, select a button called 'reverse' that opens up a new journal entry with the transactions reversed.

Hello Sally @SallyIMH

You can do a reversal of a journal in Account Right.

Firstly go to Setup / Preferences and then the Security Tab. Put a tick on the first option "Transactions CAN'T be changed; they must be Reversed"

Then open the Journal you want to reverse. Right click and select the Reverse option. this creates the reversal and just date it as you want . Record. you can then change the Preference back to normal.

Thanks for your response @David_Cree

 

I leave the option for transactions to be changed open, as there's just me here so I'm not concerned about things changing without my knowledge... so I guess when I want to reverse a journal (I'm thinking in regards to month-end accruals), I could tick this option for transactions to be unchanged, and then reverse the journal, then untick it again. Not ideal and would be better if you could still reverse them regardless of whether that option was selected, but I suppose it's a work-around for now.
