Reversing invoices that have picked up billable costs

A predecessor generated an invoice that picked up billable costs. This needs to be reversed so the one invoice can be created into separate invoices. Is there a way to reverse this invoice and re-instate the billable costs that appear on here. Otherwise it is a nightmarish 8 page long invoice.

My understanding is that once you have created an invoice with billable costs, that "that is it."
Not the answer you were looking for.   

I suggest that you:
  1. run a "transaction detail by account" report for the client and period concerned
  2. export the report to excel
  3. modify the report to a format that works for you and which only includes the billable items.  Make sure you exclude your fees
  4. create an invoice with text along the lines of "billable costs - see attachment"
  5. send both to the client
Not elegant but it should still be quicker than typing up an 8 page invoice

Thank you! Exporting it to Excel was my ideal solution. This will save so much time. Thank you!
