Delete or Edit Locations

It was some years ago, I was working through my system and I ended up in a section that gave me access to my location list. I thought to myself, since I am here I may as well check through them and delete any duplicates, or typos etc.


Since then, I've not been able to get back to my locations list to delete. I don't want to deactivate them or archive them. I want them removed from the system.


I did a location report. I checked the location list, but I just cant seem to be able to find a delete location function...


Anyone know if it still exists?

Delete or Edit Locations

Hi BrentV,


Let me help with that. If you are looking to remove or edit Locations from your QuickBooks file it does involve finding it within your Lists


To find this please see the steps below:


  1. When signed in select the Gear icon in the top right, then under the Lists column select All lists
  2. Then out of your options you will see your Locations subject. 
  3. The next page will take you to your list of Locations within QuickBooks and on the right-hand side you will a drop down arrow for each one. 
  4. As you cannot fully delete a Location from your file you can make it Inactive which will hide it from any reporting and lists unless in use, then you will have to change the item's location. Also on the drop down you will see Edit which is where you can amend any typos. 


Hope this helps,
