Each menu option performs a different purging task.

 

Purge Sales & Payment Files — To move data from the current sales and payment files and put them in yearly files, see step 2. The Jewelry Shopkeeper automatically performs this task as needed so you generally do not have to use this option.

 

Purge Zero Quantity Inventory — To purge inventory with zero quantities, see step 3.

 

Purge Individual Inventory Items — To purge selected inventory items, see step 4.

 

Purge Invoices — To purge paid invoices payable from the system, see step 5.

 

Purge Credit Slips — To purge used credit slips and gift certificates from the system, see step 6.

 

Purge Purchase Orders — To purge purchase orders, see step 7.

 

Purge Checkbook Files — To move data from the current checkbook file and put them in yearly files, see step 8.

 

Cleanup a Range of Purge Files — Resorts your yearly files. Use this option if you have trouble locating items that are in your purged sales or checkbook files. See step 9.

 

Refer to the step for the menu item you have chosen.
