Here's a silly question. Is the invocie right? The auto-apply should have been correct if the amount of the invoice was correct. Just transfer the additional 7.00 to operating. But don't record it, because the apply funds already included the 7.00. A withdraw funds transaction would not apply to an invoice. Somewhere there is a payment, apply funds to AR, credit, or write-off related to that invoice. Open the invoice, (click change, not reprint), and in the bottom left you'll see a tab for transactions. You will be able to see what transactions have been posted against this invoice. But, I ask again, why delete the invoice? Was the invoice right? Was the apply funds to AR right? Only your transfer to operating was incorrect, so just fix that part. If you have the accounting turned on, you'll need to keep this in mind when doing the account reconciliation.

Thanks for the reply. The invoice is right. I have balanced everything, essentially, by doing what you suggest. Because it was invoiced right my Operating account thought it had $7 more in it than it did, and my Trust had $7 less than reflected in TM. For the operating account, I listed a "withdraw" of $7 and for the trust I listed a deposit of $7 to reflect the mistake. I then wrote a check from the trust for the $7 and recorded that in both the trust and operating account. Now everything reconciles. I know I could have just written the $7 check from the trust, but there was some time that went by, and I wanted it reflected in the trust what the actual balance was at all times.
My problem with that is that it does not reflect what actually happened. I get pretty nervous when it comes to any funds coming out of the trust and, like everyone, I want to make sure everything is documented so when I get audited things go smoothly.
I did check the transaction list on the invoice. The only transaction listed is the Apply Funds to AR. When I click on it to delete it, nothing happens. The tag on the record gets reset but the transaction does not get deleted.
I can live with it the way it is, but it just annoys me that I cannot figure out why this transaction cannot be deleted.
