Hi, I am having trouble deleting transactions that are still showing up on certain accounts in quickbooks. I get an error message that says "this transaction will cause a deleted account named... etc.." Any help?
This error can occur if you're trying to delete a transaction that is linked to an inactive account. To successfully delete the transaction, you'll want to make the account active first.
Then, you can continue deleting the transaction.
Let me know if you need more help with this.
