You can add or delete any Account Detail Type by selecting Classification Codes from the Argenta main menu on the left-hand side of the screen:

Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every list in Argenta has an “Export To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.



To Remove An Account Detail Type


In the account detail type list, click the corresponding Delete  icon to remove the account detail type from Argenta. Account detail types that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the account detail type because it has been used to classify an Account. If you still want to delete it, you can find the Accounts associated with it by filtering the Accounts list, reclassifying all associated accounts, then trying again to delete it.
