Deleting Entries on a List

You can remove list entries that have never been used. This option generally applies to account names that QuickBooks entered when you first set up your company and that you never intend to use, but this procedure can also be used for other information you don't need. For example, if you open the Terms List and see several options for payment terms that your company doesn't use, you can delete the unwanted choices.
