    Hello,
    I’m using v4.5.5 on my self-hosted system. I started testing the application and therefore I created 2 invoices. Then I added my real clients and generated real invoices. The problem now is that I have the wrong invoice numbers in the application.

    I’ve found no way to delete/reset the invoices. The only way that I see it to completely remove all data (delete DB?) and import the backups from the customers, products, and so on (except the invoices). Then I would have to manually create each invoice (which would not be a big problem). I would only use this option if there is no other way to reset/delete every invoice completely from the system.

    What are my possibilities to start with 0 in the invoice counter?

    Thanks for your help and input.

    To maintain consistency in the database, they have it set that even if an invoice is deleted, you can’t re-use the number. (Deleted invoices are still present in the DB, just not shown).

    The simplest thing to do would be to go into Settings > Invoice Settings, alter the Prefix or Pattern, and then set the Counter back to 1.

    You can permanently delete invoices by either purging the client or the entire company.
