B – Blank out a Database

This option removes all records from a database. You may wish to do this to clear a work file after the details have been processed / reported and are no longer required.

After creating the call for the clear down routine on the menu there are no further parameter settings required.

Note that this option allows the use of selection criteria at run-time but you can not predefine the criteria within the definition, also note that this option is not suitable for use in an automatic (Q) menu as it will pause to allow entry of criteria.If you wish to pre-define criteria or run the option automatically in a menu use the G-Global Update option for clearing records (see later).
