Delete company and associated contacts

We are trying to clean up some old information out of our database and when we delete a company we also want to delete all associated contacts. Is there a feature to do this? If not I see when we delete a company the contact obviously come unlinked. Is there a query we can run to display all unlinked contacts so we can at least identify and delete them without a lot of extra work?

Thanks,

Re: Delete company and associated contacts

Jerry,

If you'd like to delete the contacts associated with a Company, right click on the Company and select 'Create Lookup'.  It will present the Contact List view from which you can delete multiple contacts simultaneously.  Then go back and remove the Company itself.

 

Note: Always back up your database before performing maintenance and deletes (File > Back Up > Database).
