vendor purchase order double entry

There is an entry on 28 January in GG account – see attachment – that we do not know where it came from. This is an incorrect entry. The correct entry is the one on 24 January, S19/017.How do we find out where the entry on 28/1 came from and how to remove it. Thanks.


Hi there, Doros Kyratzis.

You can run the Audit Log to check who created the duplicate purchase order transaction. You can also trace there where the entry is coming from.

For more details about Audit Log, you can check out this article:

On the other hand, you can manually delete the duplicate one to remove it from your entry.

Here's how:

  1. Click Expenses on the left side menu.
  2. Choose the Expenses tab.
  3. Click Filter.
  4. Under Type, choose Purchase order.
  5. Under Date, adjust the date period.
  6. Click Apply.
  7. Open the duplicate transaction.
  8. Click More, choose Delete.
  9. Click Yes to confirm.

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.
