Deleting Vendors (in consecutive order) By Batch

There may be times when you need to delete vendor records in bulk for some reason. Don’t waste your time deleting each one by one.

In NetSuite, it is possible to delete several records at once using Inline Editing. However, vendor records must be in consecutive order.

  • Step 1: Go to Lists → Relationships → Vendors. This will pull up the Vendor list page.
  • Step 2: If Inline Editing preference is not enabled, click Edit beside the Show Inactives
     
    Once enabled, a green checkmark will appear as shown below. You will also notice a New column that will show up at the utmost left side.

  • Step 3: To delete, hold the CTRL key and select the lines you want to include.
