A reader asks a question about how to recover a deleted transaction in QuickBooks.
I just deleted a HUGE journal entry that took me a couple hours to enter. I closed and saved it, went back later to print it and meant to delete a single LINE from the entry, but accidentally deleted the entire journal entry. It there any way to retrieve it? Help!
Once QuickBooks creates the report, change the date range at the top to match the date you deleted the transaction. See if you can get the details there. You can also run a detailed version of the report:
This will NOT recreate the actual transaction. But it will give you the details of it so you can re-enter it again.
I am wondering: why did this entry take a couple hours to make? It's extremely unusual to have a journal entry take that much time and makes me wonder if there isn't a more efficient way for you to work. Is it common for entries to take so long for you?
Let me know if this helps you recover a deleted transaction in QuickBooks by posting a comment below. Thanks for writing.
