Mass delete Chart of Accounts

Sarah Cheung asked 8 months ago
Is there any way to mass delete the records from Chart of Accounts instead of inactivating them?

I’m assuming you mean “from Dynamics GP” and if so, I don’t see that you can from SmartConnect/eConnect.
https://www.eonesolutions.com/tech-tuesday-what-data-can-smartconnect-integrate-in-dynamics-gp/
SmartConnect uses the MSFT eConnect nodes and from the doc above (with link to the official eConnect SDK) doesn’t show that there is a node for “delete accounts” for GP.
But as you note, there is an ACTIVE flag on the account that you can set with SmartConnect/eConnect that you can use to inactivate them.
But as a workaround, you could write your own SQL script to delete these records (and whatever records you like )and execute it from SmartConnect – but obviously any data validation is up to you since you are directly manipulating the SQL data at that point.  So unless you really know what you are doing – I wouldn’t recommend doing it from the back end like that.
