Can I overwrite an automatic sales tax filing to make a new file with different dates for the same tax period?

I'm shutting down a company and so my sales tax period has only two months instead of the typical three months. Unfortunately I didn't realize I needed to change the dates until i had created the file and CRA would not accept the dates as the GST period has been closed at the two month mark.  I need to adjust and resubmit as CRA did not accept the file. 

I tried to make a new file with the proper dates but quick books won't let me submit for the same period. I keep getting an error message that says something like "you cannot submit for a period that you have already filed". I tried deleting the pdf that it made the first time, hoping that it would sense it missing and let me make a new one, but that didn't work.

So I'm stuck here still needing to file to CRA but quickbooks won't let me make a new file. Is there some way to override this?

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
