How to delete multiple invoices in quickbooks.

So I uploaded roughly 2000 invoices without calculating the correct fees prior to the upload. With that said, I am finding it best to start from scratch. To do so I need to delete these invoices first. I saw with a previous discussion that macros can be created to delete multiple invoices. Does anyone know how to create the macro to delete the invoices and/or is there a way to delete multiple invoices in QuickBooks?


Thanks in advance!

How to delete multiple invoices in quickbooks.

You can start your QBO from scratch or look for a third-party app that can create the macros, DWard.


At this time, there's no option to batch delete the invoices. It would be best to share this idea to our developers to be considered in any future updates. You can visit our feedback site to send your thoughts and suggestions about the program:


Here's how to delete an invoice:

  1. Click Sales on the left panel, and then select Invoices.
  2. Click the invoice that you want to delete.
  3. Click More at the bottom, and then Delete.
  4. Click Yes when prompted.

I've also seen the discussion you're referring to. I'd suggest visiting our App Center to find an application that can help you create the macros so you can delete those invoices.


If you want to start from scratch, you have the option to purge your company file. This option is available in QBO Essentials and Plus with an active account for less than 60 days. If it goes beyond that period, you'll want to cancel your account and start a new subscription.


I'll be here if you any further concerns. Thanks for dropping by.
