Let’s face it – mistakes happen all the time in business. Whether you sent a payment to the wrong vendor, issued a check in the wrong amount, or have to apply a stop payment – there are plenty of situations where you may need to Reverse a Check in Sage 100 ERP.

Here are the steps to reverse a check in Sage 100 ERP (formerly “MAS 90” and “MAS 200”) Accounts Payable.

If you have a check to reverse without Job Cost distributions, follow these steps:

2. In the Bank Code field, enter the bank code associated with the check to reverse.

3. In the Check No. field, enter the check number of the check to reverse.

4. Click Yes in response to the question, “Is this a check reversal?”

5. Click Yes in response to the question, “Recall original invoices?” to reopen the original invoice. Note: If you click No, skip to Option 2.

6. Click Accept on the Lines tab where the invoice will be displayed with a negative amount. This will adjust the invoice balances back into Accounts Payable.

7. Print the Manual Check Register and then Click Yes to Update Check Register.

Option 2

If at Step 5 you click No to “Recall Original Invoices” and leave the original invoice(s) closed, here are the remaining steps:

Click Accept, print the Manual Check Register, and Update Check Register.

NOTE 1: If the check was for G/L distribution only, an invoice will be created and posted to the vendor’s Open Invoice file aka: AP_OpenInvoice.M4T
