Unable to remove item because it is being used by other records in the database.

Unable to remove itemCertain items in BargeOps can be removed, such as barges, boats, customers, and facilities. However, they can only be removed if they have never been used. For example, if you enter a new facility, and then discover you already had the facility under a different name, you can remove (delete) the new facility provided you have not used that facility on a barge ticket or other record in the system. When you attempt to remove an item, the system automatically checks to see if it has been used for anything. If so, you will get the message, “Unable to remove item because it is being used by other records in the database.”

What you can do:

Even though you cannot remove the item, you can still prevent it from showing up and being used by making it inactive. To do this, modify the item, uncheck the Active checkbox, and click Submit.
