I’m a big fan of Joe Son’s Netsuite blog. He shares some interesting stories about his learning curve with Netsuite development.

In his latest, Scripting tip-35:When deleting a record gives you “Owner of Child Record” – Knowledge Share Care, Joe talks about how an error message “Owner of child record …” was generated while trying to delete a (sales) Lead record. Apparently the Lead owns the contact records associated with the lead and when you attempt to delete the Lead, you cannot simply detach the contact records from the lead, you have to Mass Update the ownership of those Contact Records so that they do not point back to the Lead record.
