I made a supplier payment. I entered a wrong value, so I need to cancel it.

Using the Unreconcile button I get an error message informing me I need to configure the journal:

How can the Bank journal be configured to allow cancelling the reconciliation?

Install the module 'Cancel Journal Entries' - account_cancel.

This module adds 'Allow Canceling Entries' field on form view of account journal.

If set to true it allows user to cancel entries & invoices.

Thanks, that solves it. It's weird to have to install a module for that - it's not reasonable to assume that users never do something wrong.

I agree - but it is a slippery slope. Some people think of this as using a pencil to record transactions in the general ledger.

I do not want to install the "Cancel Journal Entries" module. What are the steps to reverse the journal entries? So that the invoice will be marked as "unpaid". Or is that not possible? 

I would like the errors to be still in the journal but with extra entries to correct it. Like using a pen to record the transactions in the general ledger? I hope I am clear.
