Before deleting a building, you must move all existing assignments to another building.

2.       In the Navigation pane, click Buildings.

3.       To populate the Building list, you must enter in search criteria.  There are two ways to populate the list:

5.       Once you click Delete, a message box appears verifying that you really want to delete the building.  Click Yes within the box to continue or No to cancel the operation.

6.       If a warning message appears notifying you there is still existing information associated to the building, you must delete any services still in the building.  For example, if telephone numbers, electronic sets, or circuits are still working in the building, you must remove them.  Further, if there are terminals in a building, you must delete the cables in the terminals and the terminals themselves before you can delete the building.  In short, delete all working service of any kind.
