Vendors with NO transactions

Simple question (QB Desktop):  Is it possible to generate a list of Vendors (or Other Names) who have NO transactions at all.  In merging a few databases I ended up with some Vendors with no transactions I'd like to find and delete those Vendors. 

Here's what the Vendor List shows for such vendors that I want to easily find: There are NO Transactions.png

Thank you!

Vendors with NO transactions

Hi there, soberman99. 


Thank you for dropping by the Community. Unfortunately there's no way at this time to generate a list or report of vendors that have no transactions at all. While I could see how this could be beneficial, especially if you're looking to remove those vendors, I'm going to recommend this feature be added to our product development team. Keep an eye on our QuickBooks Blog to see news on future updates and changes made to our products. 


I'm also including a few helpful QuickBooks Desktop articles down below:

If you have any other questions, feel free to post here anytime. Thank you and have a nice day.

Thank you so much for your clear answer.  I couldn't figure out how to do this for a very good reason.  It can't be done!!  I hope this possibility will be included with future updates of QB.  I must say, I have been using QB for about 15+ years and I am constantly impressed with its functionality and especially with its speed!!  Best regards.

Thanks for reaching back out to the Community.


We'll let our Product Developers know of your request so that they can consider this in one of the new releases. They take the time to review every entry and try to tie them together to improve QuickBooks for everyone. 


In the meantime, cruise on over to this link about customizing vendor reports that could help your business in the future. 


Should you need any further assistance with your vendors, please don't hesitate to contact me. I value you as a customer. I'll always be around to help. Take care!
