A department with invoice or inventory records can be removed from the list of active departments.  An inactive department will not appear in Advanced Lookup, report selection criteria, or active inventory department lists.  However, you can still view it.  You can also restore the department back to active status.

Note: You can only delete/mark a department inactive if all inventory has been disassociated with that department. If you attempt to delete/mark a department as inactive while it has inventory associated with it (regardless if the inventory items are active or deleted), you will get the following error: “Unable to delete. Used by -insert number of items – in inventory
