Usually when things have been posted in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, they become historical data and you can’t edit them anymore. You can, however, edit some descriptions that you may have missed.
In Dynamics 365 Business Central, go to the Chart of Accounts -> Checking Account -> Ledger Entries.
Here, you will see all the posted entries and if you click on the Edit List, you can edit the Description. You will notice that even though you’re in the edit list functionality, you can’t change the account names, the posting types, the account numbers and the document types because it’s all historical data. The feature prevents you from editing important historical details.
Change Log Entries
With the help of Change Log Entries, you can keep track of these changes.
It’ll show you the old value versus the new value, the type of change, modified description for that entry, and the ID of the user creating that change. It is a pretty useful tool to track modifications and help auditors.
