Editing contribution amounts, especially if the contributions are made against pledges, should be done with caution. If you need to edit the amount of a cash/check contribution, you can do so by pulling up the contribution record and clicking the "Edit" hyperlink to the right hand side.
Please note - the amount must be changed in two separate fields:
- Total Amount field located at the top of the record contribution screen
- Net Amount field located at the bottom of the record contribution screen under "Additional Details"
If changes to the amount are not reflected in both fields, you will be presented with the following error message: "The sum of fee amount and net amount must be equal to total amount" and the system will not allow you to save your changes.
