Have QuickBooks Confirm Before Deleting
Since none of us is perfect, it’s not uncommon to delete an item inadvertently. Fortunately, QuickBooks has an option that produces a warning when you delete a transaction or an item that has not been used in a transaction—it’s a standard message asking you to confirm a delete action. (QuickBooks doesn’t permit you to delete an item that has been used in a transaction.) When this option is enabled you must confirm that you want to delete the transaction or unused list item before QuickBooks will proceed. To turn this option on:
- Choose Edit | Preferences from the QuickBooks menu bar.
- Click the General icon on the left pane and then click the My Preferences tab.
- Select the Warn When Deleting A Transaction Or Unused List Item option by clicking the corresponding check box.
- Click OK to save the setting.
