    The following options are available:


              *        Select the desired mode from the Purge Item Vendor File menu bar

              *        Enter the data requested on the screen

              *        All item/vendor relationships for which the last activity date is on or before the date you enter will be deleted from the file. Once you have verified the entry as cor­rect, the program will begin processing. You will be asked to wait until processing occurs. A message will display on the screen to inform you when processing is complete.

If anyone else is using the file, a message will appear on the screen, informing you to have them exit their application so that the purge may continue.
