Deleting Print Formats

Dear all,


How to delete Print Formats, Letter Heads, … i don’t want to use anymore?

Hi,

You need to have “Cancel” permission to delete any document. You can assign/modify permission of any document through Setup -> Permission Manager

Hi,

You cannot directly delete these master because of possibility of it being used in existing transactions. For letterhead, check “Disable” and uncheck “Default” field and save it.

In print format, make Doctype field blank and save it. Once this is done, you will be not be able to use it in new transactions.


Hope this helps.

Hi,

In that case, Nabin’s suggestion will hold true. Assign yourself permission (from Permission Manager) to cancel Print Format. This will allow you to delete unwanted print formats. For Letterhead, only disabling is possible.


Renaming is not possible for said records. Instead, you can create new record with required name and deprecate old ones.

Hope this helps.

These kinds of tips should be placed in a help document / wiki directly linked to each form page.
