Moving a Posted Document

Autosoft -

Once a document has been posted, you can move it from one month to another. For instance, if the document is a post-ahead entry, you can move the document backward to the previous month. If the document was posted to the current period, it can be moved forward to the next month. 

To move a posted document, follow these steps:

Step 1. From the Dealership Accounting main menu, select Journal Entries

Step 2. The Journal Entries menu will open. Click Journal Utilities

Step 3. On the Journal Utilities menu, select Reverse A Posted Document.

Step 4. The View A Document screen will open. A pop-up will outline the requirements for reversing an entry. Read the requirements and click OK to acknowledge them. 


Step 5. Use the Document field to type the document number for entry you wish to move. 

Step 6. Click Move.

Step 7. The system will ask you to verify that your printer is ready. Select To Printer to print a hardcopy or To Screen to view the item on your monitor. 

Step 8. Click Print. Depending on the print criteria you selected, the item will print or the PDF will open.

Step 9. The system will ask you to verify that you wish to move the document from the current month to the next or from a post-ahead month to the current month, depending on the document's original posting date. Click OK to proceed. A progress bar will pop up in the upper-right corner of the screen.

Step 10. When the move is complete, a "Completed" message will pop up. Click OK to dismiss the message.
