Delete Multiple Transactions in QuickBooks in One Go

QuickBooks has made accounting a lot easier. It can record all the entries and without an error, it can easily get updated in no time. Record maintenance tasks include more than just recording entries. It may include the task of eliminating some entries as well. When the number of entries is less than 5, it can be done one by one. What if you have to get rid of more than 1000 entries?

This task will become tedious and very time-consuming. Currently, with QuickBooks, multiple entries cannot be deleted. One needs to do one at a time. It was a setback but a workaround has also been found. You can delete multiple entries in one go on the QuickBooks desktop version.

Note: The very first and mostly recommended steps is to create a back for the file, in case, you wish to check back the existing report of transactions. This approach will also avoid your risk for making an error.
