Accounts Payable Wire Reversal in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The purpose of this blog is to assist in the reversal of AP payments in AX 2012 that do not have check numbers such as Wire, Electronic Payment or ACH. It may be necessary for a payment to be reversed in order for corrections to be made. In order to reverse a wire payment the following steps should be followed:

1. Navigate to the All vendors area Accounts Receivable > Common > Vendors > All vendors.

2. In the all vendors page select the vendor for which the payment reversal is needed.

3. Once the appropriate vendor is selected click on the Closed Transaction Editing button which can be found under the Invoice tab.
