This routine is designed to purge (delete) check records with a date equal to and older than the cutoff date entered. This option is found on the Purge sub-menu.
SELECT CHECKS TO PURGE
ENTER THE ENTITY (01) >
Enter the entity ID.
ENTER THE CUTOFF DATE >
Enter a specific date, and include the year (ie. /web/90). Check records dated on or before the date entered will be selected.
LIST CHECKS TO PURGE
You are prompted for the entity ID and for an output selection. You should verify that the records selected are the ones you wish to purge, and should also retain the list for future reference.
DUMP CHECKS TO TAPE
In addition to the list of checks to purge, the check records should be dumped to a labeled tape(s) prior to purging from the system. If the records are needed in the future, you will be able to reload the records from the tape(s). Be sure that a tape is loaded, and use the normal tape commands for your system.
PURGE SELECTED CHECKS
After the checks have been selected, a list printed and verified, and the selected checks dumped to tape(s), you may purge the checks from the system. You are prompted for the entity. All selected records for that entity will be purged.
