Database Maintenance

Every once in a while, you'll probably have occasion to perform some basic maintenance on the database and the records within them. This can include re-indexing it, removing some old data, or detaching it for the purpose of copying. All these commands, and more, are part of the Maintain Company File dialog. To open this dialog, just choose Maintain... from the File menu.

The dialog contains two tabs, Maintenance and Advanced.

The tools on the Maintenance tab are as follows:

Moving on to the Advanced tab, you have additional (lesser-used) options here for working with the data file and the information in it.
