How do you modify entries without a reversal entry being recorded?

I've entered invoices, journal entries, checks, etc. Each time that I want
to modify one of these entries, the original entry is reversed and the new
entry is recorded. this may be a good safety check, but it also makes for a
messy and confusing transaction history. Can this feature be turned off?

Yes it can, except it requires QuickBooks. You will however miss SBA's
office intergration which QB does even better.

Allan,
Please correct me if I am wrong but in order to do this the user would have
the ability to delete a transaction???

Yes that is true if the database is not protected with a date password.

Allan,
Thanks for the reply.
So then anyone with the date password (accountant included) could then
delete a transaction that leaves no record of the transaction?

No, there is always the audit trail feature which is always on beginning
with QB version 2006.

Just like the fact that you can always know when an elephant has been in
your refrigerator by the foot prints in the cream cheese.
