Step 1: Replacement or Correction?
At the top of the Replacement Receipt Printing window there are hints to help you decide which option to select. You can also refer to the flowchart above.
Replacement Receipt is the correct choice if the information on the receipt does not need to be changed; it is being replaced because it was lost. Select Process Replacement as your option and click Proceed. A new receipt will be produced with a new receipt number.
Print Correction is the correct choice if you need to correct the receipt in any way, for example, change the Name or Address on the receipt. Once you have selected Print Correction, the drop down menu to select the Type of correction becomes available. Select what kind of correction you are making. Your options are:
Name/Address, Donor (Reassign to a different donor), Date/Year,
In the image below, I have selected Donor.
In the next window, you can select the correct donor (in the sample), or change the name and address.
