I just went through a BPCS 4.04 to 4.05 CD conversion with one of my clients, 
and
there was a program to remove the empty workstation members included in all the
tapes we received.  The command gives you a prompt for the BPCS files library,
you press enter and after awhile (it might have been an hour or two), your empty
workstation members are gone and you get a list of the members removed.  I 
intend
to keep using it.

Program/command is RMVWMBR - Remove Empty Workstation Members in PFs and LFs
We received it in library SSACNVDRV - BPCS Conversion Library for Driver 
Programs

There is a comment in the source for the CLP RMVWMBR that says it was written 26
Sept 97.

It seems to get rid of most of the junk members and leaves the members that
should be left in the files.  Since SSA has had this program for so long, one
would think they could make it available to their customers.  Give them a call
and see if you can get it.
