changing deposit accounts on sales receipts

I have 2007 quickbooks. My original bookkeeper set up all sales receipts go into undeposited accounts. My new bookkeeper suggested I need to separate into different accounts. That said I need to go back and edit past sales receipts that were deposited to undeposited, to a new account I created. However, when I try to do that I get this error message:

“You need to delete this sales receipt from the deposit before you can edit its name or amount. Discard changes and continue?”

How do I make the change?


My new bookkeeper suggested I need to separate into different accounts.

Undeposited funds is only a holding account used prior to making deposits. Make your selection for the deposit account from make deposits. Income accounts are assigned at the item level.

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.
