I am constantly learning stuff from BPCS_L & checking out various hints & 
tips, but cannot always keep up with it all.

We do not have ZPD file on BPCS 405 CD, however ESH & ESL each have approx 
7,000 active records dating back to 1998-08-03

We have not been purging pick tickets, shipping documents, or innards of 
blanket orders.

Question - how should they get purged?  
Is there an SSA option to do this or does this require another mod?
