When a journal entry made directly to the GL is unposted, the JE actually remains posted along with a reversing entry, zeroing out the JE. This preserves the audit trail. Automatically, an unposted journal entry is added that copies the original JE. To edit its amounts, choose Edit > Edit Amounts. Then proof and post. To edit its accounts, delete only the unposted portion by choosing Edit > Delete this JE. Then, add a new JE. If desired, use the same JE number again to attach the new entry to the existing one.
