    • Click on the Batch you want to change > Select “Download to Excel”. (Be sure to have your columns visible)
  3. Filling in the Template: 
    • Open up the Generic Template and the Download Batch Excel Files. 
    • Copy and paste data from the downloaded batch Excel document in the corresponding columns in the Template file. Be sure to not overwrite the column id’s in the first row of the Generic template. 
    • Update the data that needs to be corrected. Save this file as a CSV document.
  4. Delete old Batch Data:
    • Navigate to More > Contributions > Batches and click the “x” by the Batch that you wish to amend. This will delete all transactions within that batch so you can now import the correct information.
