Deleting all Categories

Unknown
Unknown Member
I just purchased Quicken and it has gone ahead and created categories and tagged transactions to them.  90% of them are wrong and it is confusing how to re-categorize and move transactions. I would like to know the steps to delete all categories, transactions and start with a blank slate.

    Then delete the original once I have everything working the way I want?

    Just abandon the old data file.  The new data file will be empty ... and you can add to it as you want.
