RobMark :

what program are you using ?

RobMark :

quicken you should just be able to select the line and then hit ctrl D or right click and select delete

RobMark :

If you are using quickbooks it might have problems if the entry is tied to an invoice

RobMark :

the other thing that you can do in either of them is right click the entry and select match. That should allow you to match it with the other entry and combine them. This is often necessary when you enter a check manually and then download the same check that the program can not match automatically

Our company just installed Quickbooks on our Mac


I downloaded information from our bank.


I was in the process of matching items that would then go


to the check register. In the process there were duplicate entries


because I must have force-posted somewhere (maybe using


the "add one" selection when I didn't know it (??) - not really sure how the duplicates showed


up. The first transaction date that I'm verifying has several duplicates


(by duplicates I mean it posted on the check register 2 additional times other than the original). I think it is the entry in the register with the check mark that I don't want to delete but when I right click the other duplicate entries there isn't a delete option...and it won't let me hi-lite the entire entry to choose what to do (??)

ok if you are still in the download process you may not be able to delete it. You might want to check with the bank to make sure it was not actually counted twice at the bank.

You wont be able to delete it from the list to download. You might be able to mark it to not download. But either way you should go through with the download and then delete it from the register itself.
