The reset accounting process also allows to reset the accounting transactions set as "Disable for Accounting" to "Posted" = No, therefore the Accounting Server Process if scheduled can take them once again to get them automatically posted.
In this case the "Delete existing Accounting Entries" checkbox does not have to be selected.

Let's take for instance a supplier which never asked for a prepayment but at a given point in time due to whatever kind of reason. It could happen that the prepayment transaction can not be posted in the Payment Out window because a Vendor Prepayment account was not configured by mistake.

In that case the prepayment transaction is set to "Document Disable for Accounting" as shown in the image below:
