ACH Categories that cannot be DELETED

STOP HERE/READ: Before Deleting any ACH Categories, first see if there are any ACH Category Types that have recurring transactions. If recurring transactions exist, the delete column will display a QUESTION MARK ICON. When clicking on the QUESTION MARK ICON, a message will appear noting that the category has pending transactions or recurring transactions scheduled.

  • Until all transactions under that ACH Category are final or voided, you will NOT be able to delete the ACH Category
  • If there are recurring transactions in this ACH category and you can successfully void ALL ACH transactions, then and only then can you delete the ACH category.
