Remove a variation
A Variation can be deleted only if it is not associated any orders, manufactures or recipes.

If you would like to remove a variation due to this combination no longer being sold, it is advised that you leave this variation in place as merging, moving or removing data will have an impact on your inventory and costings.
If you would like to remove a variation due to it being a duplicate, this is most likely due to duplicated variation attributes. To fix this issue, review your variation attributes and merge them together where necessary. Variations will in this case be automatically merged together as part of this process.
