Reversing transactions are a regular task performed in any business. When creating a manual journal entry to reverse a given transaction, you can decide whether to keep the amounts in the same sides and with negative sign or, to switch the debit and credit to be opposite to the original transaction.

Available in SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA and SAP Business One.
