Form Details

The PARTS.P2 procedure deletes Parts Master records which have been flagged for deletion in the status field. The status field may be set by the PARTS.E procedure.

The procedure first selects all of the part records with the status field set to "D". Then it checks every record in the data base which uses part numbers to determine if the part is still in use. If the are no records using the part number it is deleted, otherwise it is left on the Parts file unchanged. Since the part record is not changed, the record will automatically be rechecked when this procedure is run again. Eventually it will be deleted when the records in the data base which reference it are purged.

Frequency of Use
The frequency at which you run this procedure depends upon how often you flag parts for deletion, and how quickly you want them removed from the data base. The best approach is to set the process to run in a batch procedure which is run at an appropriate interval.
