Help: need to delete duplicated file transfer

Hi. Newbie here. I imported transactions from unlinked checking to my budget using instructions in the "file-based import" doc. However, I took the instructions too literally, I think. I approved the transaction BOTH in the "all accounts" and also in "checking". So the transfer is duplicated and I can't seem to make it right. I can't seem to just delete a transaction without moving the money to a different category, which is NOT what I want to do. Can't find help for this in official YNAB docs. How do I: 

1. entirely just delete a transaction from my budget (after it's been approved)

2. edit the amount in a transaction (after it's been approved)


If I can't figure this out, I have to cancel the account and start over and I REALLY don't want to do that, having spent hours on it already. Can someone please help me?

  • #1. Select the transaction, Edit, Delete, click through the warning if you have reconciled/locked it.

    #2. Double-click on the amount in the transaction.

  • Hi Cadet Blue Camera !

    Here's a quick animation of how to delete a transaction in the web app. If you delete a transfer transactions, it will be deleted in both the account the money was sent to and the account the money was sent from.

    To edit any information in a transaction, double-click the entry and change it to what you'd like - here's an example of editing the date.

    I hope that helps! :)
