Removing overapplied payments from Payable Transaction Inquiry

Our AP department has over applied a couple of wire payments, some of these are as far back as 2008 and others as recent as 2014.
Seeing as these are closed years, I was hoping that there is a way that these can be suppressed to not show on the reports as they are no longer valid. Can any of the experts suggest a best practice if feasible to resolving this issue?

Thank you

Typically I see a 'lookup table' somewhere that will contain the value of the latest accounting closed month/year.   Then reports will do a functional call / JOIN / whatever to retrieve this value, and code accordingly.

An Access-based methodology is here, if you ignor the Access-specific images this can apply to any database.   I've used this approach in SQL Server for multiple clients.
