View Full Version : Difficulty voiding checks and error message

I am entering checks for customers from their check registers, several months in arrears. I try to void a check in the same period that it is written. If I don't give it a GL and amount, and save it, I can't void it (sometimes one doesn't have any info on a voided check....).

So I entered the voided check with a GL and amount, saved, then voided that check from the Account Register screen; I got a message that Peachtree had encountered an internal error, and I had to restart. Did that, the account register looks ok, one check in, voided check out, with ck # followed by V. This happened twice with 2 different void checks.

There are now several problems - when I tried to reconcile the account, one of the voided checks is not there to reconcile, but I am out of balance by that amount. So I give up, go back to the account register and delete both entries (not sure which first) - now when I try to reconcile the account, I am given a message that the account is in use (it's not - I closed the register window). When I try to change accounting periods to look at last month's, I am told it is in use by another user (it's not...).

Another problem (before deleting the void check entries) - both the original check entry and it's void show up on the Cash Disbursements Register, improperly inflating that total amount.

FYI I am on an office network, but no one else has Peachtree open.

Hi Sharon,

Did anyone ever answer your post. How did you solve this problem.

We encountered the same problem today. Instead of voiding we are temporarily adding the items back as a cash receipt.

Thanks for any help
