Great Plains 2010 Distribution Reference Field

A user posted an invoice with the wrong Distribution Reference description on the Payables Distribution Zoom screen. What is the best way to correct this?  Void the transaction and re-do?  The description is in the GL20000 table and I know how to change it but not sure if that would affect other tables.  Thanks!

The Distribution Reference field is also stored in the PM10100 (work/open) or PM30600 (history), depending on what stage the PM transaction is at.  The field is called DistRef in those tables.

So you could update GL20000 and one of the above PM distribution tables.  I don't believe it would be in any other tables.

I don't see any issue updating that field in those tables, as it is just a description.  Just make sure to have a complete WHERE clause in your update to ensure you only update the records you want.
