Troubleshooting - How do I delete orphaned InvoiceLine records?

Problem Description:

The InvoiceLine table contains orphan records (the parent invoice record no longer exists). I tried:

DELETE FROM Invoice WHERE TxnID = 'xxxx-xxxxxxxxx'

the TxnID is supplied from a list before running the DELETE command.

However, no records are deleted. What am I doing wrong? 
 

Solution:

The first step is to actually check that there are orphaned InvoiceLine. I would hazard to guess that you have orphaned optimized InvoiceLine only and no real orphaned InvoiceLines in QuickBooks. Run the following query with the unoptimized tag using VB Demo:-

SELECT TxnID, InvoiceLineTxnLineID, InvoiceLineDesc, InvoiceLineAmount, RefNumber FROM InvoiceLine unoptimized where RefNumber = 'yourrefnumber'

where 'yourrefnumber' is the Reference to the Invoice.

If no InvoiceLine are returned you can resync your optimized InvoiceLine table by running:

sp_optimizefullsync InvoiceLine
