How to Zero cancel previous STP submission

We have changed out payroll software mid financial year.  Our new software includes details of all previous payroll amounts for the financial year and the new payments that have occured after leaving Reckon. As a result employees have a duplicated income statement from both software systems.  Reckon has reported via STP from July to December and the new software has reported from July to present.  The ATO tell me I need to delete the amount initially reported via Reckon with an update event.  How do I do this?

Hi Adam,
Run a STP as an update event for the last pay that you lodged.
Open the file up in Note Pad and change all figures to 0.  
Then lodge this file as an update event in Gov Connect.
Cheers
