I have an org that has split into two. They already were working with two payment processors -> we're all sorted out - contacts and contributions have been migrated over into the spin-off CiviCRM database.
What we can't do is permanently delete the Contacts that have been moved into the spin-off CiviCRM database, because "This contact(s) can not be permanently deleted because the contact record is linked to one or more live financial transactions. Deleting this contact would result in the loss of financial data".
And that's ok with us as we've got all that into their spin-off CiviCRM database now. In fact right now we have double the monies. Is there any way around this - via the GUI?
