What is stopping you from changing the deposit to a payment? Are you getting an error message?

I Have tried to change the transaction from a deposit to a payment. Quicken lets me enter the trans as a payment but when I go to the Amount  collumn  it will not change when I save, it just reverts to a deposit!

What is stopping you from deleting the transaction and re-entering it?

Hi @ Robert Kaehler ,

Simply create a new proper Transaction and delete the old one. The only time, you can't delete a transaction, is after the check is sent using One Step Update, because it has a lightning bolt next to it. A Check that has Send in a Check Field, can be deleted before being sent.

A Check that has been printed incorrectly can also be voided or simply deleted and re-entered and re-printed.

Also what Release of 2017 are you on?
