#176 Error while maintaining Payee List


While trying to maintain the payee list through "Organise Payee" option under "Tools", I'm getting an error "Payee is in use". However there is no transaction against that payee as I've changed the payee for that transaction while reconciling the transaction. This has happened for quite a few transactions. This is specifically true for the payments that I've done throu electronic fund transfers.

    I have localised a problem because this happened to me: When I changed my transactions from deposits/withdrawls to transfers, clearing the links to payee, then attempted to delete the payee caused an error: Payee in use.

    This can be confirmed as follows: Make a copy of your database. With the copy,
    access the database direct, then execute the following SQL statement:-
    select * from checkingaccount_v1 where transcode = "Transfer" and payeeID > 0
    To these transactions, identify the payee, then manually set the payeeID to -1
    When this is complete, attempt to delete the payee in MMEX.

    If this fixes the problem and is the only problem, then I will issue the fix to this.
