If you had no income or expense for your business in 2016, you do not need to enter anything as the business was not active in 2016.

So do I delete the Business from Turbo Tax so we can use the personal Turbo Tax? Next Year there will be activity.  Or do I put  zero on the schedule C for income and expenses?

You do not file a Schedule C. Use only the Personal tab if you have no business to report.
