Allowing Change to Distribution Code

I would like to be able to change a Distribution Code once it is created. Currently you can not go in and make changes once it has been created. For example I have an employee who's department code was accidently put in to the system incorrectly when I transfer from Payroll to AP before I can post payroll I have to Edit Payroll System Checks and change the department code to the correct one.

    We update some of our distribution codes monthly.


    Go to:  Maintain>>Distribution Codes


    Then double click on the Dist Code that you'd like to update. You can manually adjust the segments, percentages, units, etc. If you use the Percent fields, just make sure that your total is still 100%. We use the units field as our basis, so it does the percentage calculation for us. And if you have a lot of data that you're updating and/or you update the codes frequently, you can use a .def file to import the data from excel.

    The system does allow for distribution codes to be changed.  We update some of our codes quarterly.
