In general, a record cannot be unposted if it is associated with other records. However, Accounting Seed provides the ability to unpost a Payable, even when the associated Cash Disbursements or Credit Memos are still applied. This can be a time saver when you need to make modifications.
Once the Payable is unposted, you can edit certain fields. For example, you might want to edit the Project(s) or Project Task(s) on a Payable. Or, perhaps, a Payable was posted to an incorrect GL Account. You can edit the Payable to update it with the correct GL Account. Then, once the modifications are completed, you can repost the Payable, as necessary.
This information might be helpful to keep in mind when performing tasks such as the following:
Create a Batch Payment Payable
Create a Payable from an Expense Report
Create a Payable from a Purchase Order
Create or Clone a Payable
