    Unable to delete fund because in use on PO or Invoice error

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9.0.0

    Problem Symptoms:

    Attempting to delete fund results in error message:

    Deletion Failed
    This fund, or one of its subsidiary funds, is in use on a Purchase Order or Invoice.
    Cannot delete!

    According to custom reports, fund is not used on any purchase orders or invoices


    Fund is in use on purchase orders and/or invoices, but fund name has been changed to indicate it is obsolete


    Search Acquisitions using Fund Code to determine which POs and Invoices are still using fund; delete data if still warranted in order to delete fund:

    1. In Acquisitions, go to File > Search > Purchase Order
    2. To search one fund for POs that may be linked to the fund, use the following parameters:

    Search by: Fund Code
    Condition: equal
    Search For: <insert fund code>

    3. Click Search
    4. Repeat Steps #1-3, but substitute "Invoice" in Search dropdown to search for Invoices linked to fund
