You can make changes to most sales (invoices, quotes and orders) in a few quick steps...except for these:

  • sales recorded in a closed financial year. There might be times when you need to enter adjustments for the last financial year. If you've already closed that year, you can still make changes by rolling back the financial year.
  • sales recorded in a locked period. To change a sale in a locked period, you first need to unlock the period. However, before making a change, consider how it will affect your accounts and tax reports (such as the GST you have reported).

If you need to change the form template used when printing or emailing saleshow a sale looks when printed or emailed, see Personalising invoices.

Before you can change a sale, set the AccountRight security preference which controls if transactions can be changed.

If a sale transaction has a white zoom arrow next to it, it means it can't be changed. To make it changeable (so it has a blue zoom arrow ), set the following security preference. If your user role allows you to change preferences, you can change this option at any time.

  1. Go to the Setup menu and choose Preferences.
  2. Click the Security tab.
  3. Deselect the option Transactions CAN'T be Changed; They Must be reversed.

To change the customer on a recorded sale

If you need to change the customer on a recorded invoice, here's the fastest way to do it:

  1. Find and open the invoice to be modified and save it as a recurring transaction.

  3. Go to Lists > Recurring Transactions, select the recurring transaction you just created and click Use Recurring. A new sale transaction is displayed.
  4. Select the correct customer for the transaction.
  5. If this message appears, click Cancel.
  6. Ensure all details of the invoice are correct then click Record.
  7. Go to Lists > Recurring Transactions, select the recurring transaction then click Delete.
