Hello Gord, You are correct BPCS version 6.1 and beyond keep those program level authority records around. One of the drawbacks of BPCS security maintenance (SYS600) is that when you use option 4-Delete on a user profile it does not actually delete the user it just de-activates them. So all the old users on your system that you think you deleted are still in BPCS with an inactive status. We have a product called By Invitation Only that will allow you to physically delete the user profiles from BPCS. It also greatly improves the usability of maintaining the users and their authority within BPCS. By Invitation Only allows you to maintain authority by accessing the data by Users, Programs, Warehouses, Transaction Types, Companies, Product Codes, Security Groups or Menus. So you can go after the data in the way that is easiest for you. If you would like more information contact me offline.

When I re-activated him I noticed his programs where still there. If I remember from V6.02 didn't the programs get deleted when you de-activated a user profile.
