Can Items be Deleted in Microsoft Dynamics NAV?

ArcherPoint How-To Blog: Step-by-step instructions on how to perform specific tasks in Microsoft Dynamics NAV

The question often comes up, “Can items be deleted in Dynamics NAV?”

There are two answers:

If there are no item ledger entries for the item, then Dynamics NAV allows the item to be deleted without condition.

But if there are item ledger entries for the item, then Dynamics NAV restricts the deletion to items that have no item ledger entries in an open Fiscal Year.

Items that have ledger entries in an open fiscal year cannot be deleted

To select deletion candidates, you could run a report that looks for items that have no activity in the open fiscal years.
