As we must all be aware that QuickBooks has a bank feed feature that is used to import the back transactions from the bank account and these transactions are then reflected under the bank feed section in QuickBooks.
This feature is really very helpful as it eliminates the requirement of manually recording each and every bank transaction that can require a lot of manual effort and can lead to many errors as well.
But sometimes as it happens, due to one reason or other, the transactions appearing in your bank feed section are not reflecting the true picture that should be there in the book of accounts, in that case, you may want to delete a bank transaction or multiple transactions in a one go.
For example, you imported your bank transactions in the bank feed section but took the incorrect range of dates, which resulted in duplicate transactions in the bank feed section, i.e., the transactions that have been taken to ledgers are appearing again.
These sorts of cases can be solved by excluding the transaction feature, which will help you transfer your transactions to excluded status, after which you can select to delete the entire batch of transactions uploaded from the bank website and start again. Both of these process steps will be discussed in this article, we will look into their step-wise step execution in the below sections.
