    Location cannot be deleted

    About the problem when a location cannot be deleted due to items or holdings attached to it.
    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version:
    • Relevant for Installation Type:



    Trying to delete a location, the error message "The ... location is attached to one or more items or holdings and therefore cannot be deleted".


    When performing a search for physical items in the location, nothing is found.


    Instead of a physical items search, do a physical titles search, and you will find holding records without items linked to the location.
