Delete a company database

If you want to remove a company from Microsoft Office Accounting 2009, delete the data file and then delete the associated company file, which is stored by default in the My Documents\Accounting 2009 \Companies folder of the administrator who set up your company in Accounting 2009.

Note: You cannot delete a company database when it is in use. Close the database first.

    Note: You cannot delete the database that is currently open.

  4. Click Delete.

  5. To confirm, click Yes.
