You might have to revoke a transaction that has been reversed. For example, you must revoke a reversed transaction if you have to change the transaction date of the original posting.


If you revoke a reversed transaction that involves a fixed asset, the field values of the fixed asset are reset to their previous values. For example, an asset status might be changed from Not yet acquired to Open.

You cannot revoke a reversed Transfer from reserve transaction if you already applied the amount to another asset. For example, if you create a 1,000 Transfer from reserve transaction for asset A, reverse that transaction, and then attempt to create a new 1,000 Transfer from reserve transaction for asset B, you cannot revoke the reversal transaction for asset A, because the 1,000 is already allocated to asset B.
