On occasion you may create some receipts with one of the Receipt menu options, print them off (which saves them in the database) and then decide that you don't want those receipts to exist.
Reasons might be that you observe errors in them and want to fix them without the complications of Generating Corrected Receipts, or you were just testing out creating receipts mid-year, and you really wanted to only generate year-end receipts.
If you want to delete some receipts, but aren't sure which ones, you can use Reports à Receipt à All Receipts to see a numerical list of all receipts that have been issued for the current year.
You can delete receipts that you have created, subject to two limitations:
If you are satisfied about these two limitations and do wish to delete a range of receipt numbers, select the Receipt à Delete Range menu option. This brings up the Enter Receipt Numbers window, with the current last receipt number filled in for both the "From" (starting) and "To" (ending) number of the range of receipt numbers to delete. If you accept that default, it will just delete the very last receipt that has been created. To delete a larger range or receipt numbers, change the "From" number. (You cannot change the "To" number, because of limitation (2) listed above.)
When you are satisfied with the range, click OK. It will confirm that you want to delete that range, and then if you answer Yes to go ahead, it will delete the receipts in that range, and tell you whether or not it was successful in doing so.
Deleting receipts does not delete the donations that were included in those receipts! It merely removes the record of the receipts having been issued from the database, and removes the Recpt # field values from the donations that were included in those receipts.
