I need to delete inventory Item with transaction (invoices) were the item was used,


Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, alexispinzon.pr.

Let me share some insights about deleting inventory items in QuickBooks Desktop.

When deleting inventory items, you need to delete all transactions associated with them. Otherwise, you can only make them inactive instead.

Here's how to inactivate an inventory item:

  1. Go to List and select Item List.
  2. Highlight the item you want to inactivate.
  3. Click on the Item drop down and choose Make Item Inactive.
  4. Choose Yes to confirm.

Once an item entry is inactive, you can make it active again at any time. Just place a check mark in the Include inactive box in the Item List window.

I've got an article for you to check out about adding, editing and deleting items in QuickBooks: Add, edit, and delete items.

I'm confident this answer will address your concern about deleting an inventory item.

Reach out to me if you have further questions, I'm always glad to help. Have a great day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
