As long as the orders are entirely completed and old enough (i.e. probably not a good idea to remove orders from the current annual accounting period), our Locksmith software product will 1) archive them in separate folder that has the same database structure as your production library, 2) look up and take along any conceivable orphan from something like 13 related files, 3) reorganize the files to recapture disk space. You then have to option to save the archive folder off to tape or let it sit on the hard drive for historical research projects.
Recently, a user on v6.x told us a story about buying a generic archiving product and trying to configure it to handle BPCS. After more than two years of practice, they are now interested in Locksmith because they found hundreds of thousands of orphan BPCS records the generic tool didn't know about. Locksmith can clean up that historical mess too.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Dead Customer Orders cluttering 405CD disk space
Before I write a program to delete from AS/400 the customer orders that I
believe are soft coded for deletion, I am asking if there might be some
existing BPCS program, that I may be overlooking, that is supposed to take
care of this. We are 405CD on AS/400 model 170 V5R1.
Main candidates for deletion: ECH.HID is no longer 'CH', there's nothing
left to do with the order in shipping or billing, and last action was many
We have approx 16 k (count) orders in this boat.
