I would think you would have needed to give each of the donors a reimbursement check and then have them endorse it back to the ward as a tithing donation. But this should not have caused the problem you experienced.
You can't simply transfer funds, but you can correct a donation to be in a different major category. That's what was done in this case.
But I agree that it probably would have been simpler (for the clerk, but not the donors) to issue a reimbursement check.
