Can you selectively delete To From list of item you know longer use.

Each Account in CheckBook (Pro) uses the 50 most recent Entries to construct the To/From items list, by default. If you’d like to decrease that number, which would be a way of getting an older, no longer used To/From item to disappear from the list, go to the Account menu at the top of your screen and click the Edit Account... menu, and hit To/From.

Hoped this thread would answer my question about deleting an entry in the To/From table but it didn't. Followed advice above and got this popup:

.

I clicked each button and only got a response with "The Following To/From Items:", which only seemed to allow me to add an item, not to delete an item. So how can delete an item????

I'm using Checkbook, not pro.

Sorry, but [as far as I can tell] that is not possible. I would suggest you tick the box next to "the following to/from items" and see if that leaves the selection blank the next time you enter a transaction.

Right. "the last 50" is the last 50, no matter what they were.
"The following..." brings them all up.

That you can't delete old To/From entries really bugs me so I searched and found that inside the Checkbook Accounts file is a SQLite database labeled Accounts.db that holds all transaction and user generated entries.

After poking around the database, there is an entries table that holds all the transactions entered into the app, and it looks like Checkbook doesn't store the To/From list separately. My guess is that the app looks up the most recent number of entries a user specifies and populates the field from the table. So the only way to remove old entries is to delete the transaction that contains that entry.

This, of course, is all just a guess from spending a few minutes examining the database. I'm sure it's far more complicated than that, but I am certain that the To/From entries are not stored separate from transactions.
