May I assume you know about the standard BPCS file clean up options, from secondary menu of SYS such as SYS120, most of which ought to be run when no one else on BPCS, and the standard BPCS end fiscal clean-up programs such as PUR900? We're on an earlier version of BPCS.

Our HPW file has 12 good records and 394 deleted, last updated this morning.
We have NEVER needed to take any special action to clean it up.

I have in times past done major cleanup of our BPCS files, that are not well served by the standard cleanup options, may have come to some conclusions helpful to you. Are you also aware that almost all the work involved in BPCS cleanup has already been done by 3rd party firms that offer archiving solutions? In other words, you can set business rules for goodby old data that is more sophisticated than what comes with BPCS.

In addition to file cleanup, there is also software cleanup, where we have a base version then a series of BMR and release add ons higher up the ladder of the library list, where in our case we have half a dozen copies of ORD500 each of which is in the neighborhood of a meg all by itself, and it calls a dozen other programs of like sizing. Since this has been working fine for a while, we really need to clean out the older versions, but this can be an extremely tedious undertaking.

Everyone - we are on version 6.04 mixed mode Bpcs. I'm desperately trying to do some major cleanups in our files. The HPW file has 350,000 records. Does anyone know if this file can be cleared? It looks like a work file against purchase orders and requisitions.
