Fix name of 1099R Entry

I know it's a little thing but it's truly frustrating.

Prior entry of the payor was mistyped. Now that the information is entered I can't fix it. If I type a corrected name the rest of the information disappears. As soon as I type in the Federal ID number it's automatically populated with the incorrect name.

Is there a way to fix it?

You can edit the 'tables' that store all this information (I can't remember how right now).

I usually make that a summer project for the front office to clean up those pesky typo's

Well, thanks.  BUT, it's only Tuesday 😉

I usually get a chuckle or two out of some of the typos I find.
