Deleting accounts

I have 6000 accounts in my ACT.  Want to reduce it by 5000.  is there a way of deleting a large number of accounts with one stroke.

Re: Deleting accounts

Create a lookup of the contacts you want to delete and then delete the lookup.

Re: Deleting accounts

Just a note: I would recommend deleting the contacts in batches, not all 5000 at once. If you do all at once, you are likely to lock up the program and possibly computer.

Also, be sure to make a backup of the database before deleting (File > Backup > Database).
