Purging the Master Audit File
Each time a change is made to a file or record in many forms, these changes are tracked in the Master Audit file (HQMA) if set up to do so in the Audit Options selections in a module’s Company Parameters or Company Setup forms.
You can periodically purge these records using the VA Purge Audit form.
- Open the VA Purge Audit form.
Select one of the following options:
All Tables – Purges all records in the Master Audit file through a specified date.
All Tables in a Select Module – Purges all records in the Master Audit for a specific module, through a specific date.
A Select Table – Purges all records for a specific table (e.g. APVM) through a specified date.
- Enter a date in the Delete Entries Created On or Before field, or select a date using the Calendar button.
- Click Purge. A message displays telling you how many records will be purged and asks if you want to continue.
- Click Yes to continue, or No to cancel the purge.
