How to Reverse a General Ledger Posting with One Click in Sage 100

Save time and reduce errors.

Have you ever posted a register to the wrong period and then had to re-key it to reverse it? Or how about a year end journal entry with 50 lines that you posted as of 12/31/16 instead of 12/31/15? Reentering this information can be time consuming as well as subject to user error in entering the exact same accounts with the same amounts. There is a much easier way to do this in Sage 100.

Go to General Ledger > Main > Account Maintenance and select any account that was a part of the original entry. Highlight the transaction. Click on the Journal Reversal icon.

 
 
 
You will receive the following prompt. Click on OK.
 
 
 

Go to General Ledger > Main > General Journal Entry where you will find the reversal. Edit the entry if necessary and then update it as you would any other journal entry in Sage 100.

In the example above of erroneously posting a year end entry as of 12/31/16 you can enter a posting date of 12/31/16 and a reversing date of 12/31/15. This will take care of the correction in one step as opposed to reentering two separate entries.
