        Marc/Roger ...

        We are on 4.0.5, and run INV970 as part of our normal month end.
However,
        due to the length of time it takes, we tend to skip it if the month
end
        doesn't fall on a weekend (as we're really pressed to get the system
back up
        to the users after our month end process).  The last time we did
run, it
        took 4 hours on a dedicated system (and we have a pretty big box!).
Right
        now, the last time we ran it was Dec 31, and we have 917151 records
in ILI
        with 0 balances, and only 35266 that are not 0!

        I just ran your SQL over a test copy of ILI, and was able to delete
897668
        records (I selected with all 0's in the fields, in case it had
activity this
        month) in less than 3 minutes ... a big improvement!  Assuming I ran
the SQL
        statement as part of my month end (after INV900), any reason you can
think
        of I couldn't run this over ILI/IWI instead of running INV970?
