This menu provides two options:
1. Clear out sales records no longer needed. Running it periodically clears up space on the disk and, in a multi-user environment, increases transaction response times.
2. To keep an extended history of client sales, copy them to a history library. The library is available from the sales reports menu. If you have a large number of transactions daily it may be a good idea to run this option at least once a week.
Once the records have been cleared you cannot recover them unless you have a recent back up archive.
Warning - do not run either option unless everyone is off the system. If you have not run the copy transactions option for a long time the process could take a while. Up to 15 minutes for 15 megabytes.
The sales report menu includes a button to activate the library-based reports. These reports will be as complete as the date you last updated the library.
The library reports menu is as follows:
Library reports are restricted to stock-related activity/sales only. Non-sales data is not copied into the library - for example actions, orders, invoices, etc.
