I mistakenly voided a check, when I meant to delete it to correct the check number. Now the not-actually-voided check is in my register and shows as being voided. When I try to delete that, I get a message saying voided checks cannot be deleted. How do I correct this in Billing Matters? (Or am I better off just tearing up the blank physical check I still have that Billing Matters believes is voided?) Thanks.
I believe you can print a check with the same check number. You may get a warning but you can ignore it.

Caren, I tried this and you're correct, which is counter to my understanding of a "voided" entry. Do you know if having 2 same-numbered checks would cause any effect deep in the program, in the general ledger, when they add up the registers, etc? If there's any way, I would prefer to just delete the voided entry, which would also prevent possible accounting confusion in the future. Thanks.
I suppose there might be a way to remove the voided entry but it would involve working directly with the SQL tables and I can not recommend that. Within the normal confines of the program there is no way to remove voided entries.
I have never seen a problem with two like numbered checks.
