You'll notice that certain information on this window is available for editing while other information cannot be changed.  If you need to alter information that is unavailable, the Project code for instance, you would have to void the entry and re-enter it correctly.  If the receipt you are editing is only a portion of a check from the client that covered other Deposits, Payments, or Retainers, it is important to understand that you are only changing this portion of the check.  Any changes you make will not be displayed on the other entries.


Make any desired changes to the cash receipt and information and click the OK Button to save your edits.
