Deleting GL Entries

Hello everyone…
I had to bulk edit my purchase invoices so I figured out it is a good idea to use the data import tool to export my purchase invoices, modify then insert as new records.

So I have enabled Delete Accounting and Stock Ledger Entries on the deletion of Transaction at accounts settings then I went on with cancelling then deleting the invoices

However when I open my GL entry list I still see them there and they are still linked to the suppliers, and there is no option to delete those entries

How can I totally remove everything related to purchases so I can fresh import everything back


The setting is available in V13. look in the below thread.

Yes so what happened is, I enabled this option, then deleted all purchase invoices.
I could successfully delete them however the entries are still there and can not be deleted (even through admin account)

It may have been canceled earlier.

Account settings option is not visible on my end. I have system manager role.
I have even searched in search bar, checked in accounting tab.
Past week these option was visible but now it is not.
Can someone help me in this ?

ERPNext version is : v13.35.0 (HEAD)

Do you also have Account User/Manager roles assigned to you? It is likely that the system manager and other roles assigned to you don’t have access to this.

Use the Role Permission Manager to verify:

after following all above steps its still not allowing me to delete GL Entries
