About the SL Purge Form
Use this form to purge information for subcontracts that have been closed through a given month in SL Close.
This form removes all subcontract information from SL files, and it allows you to control the amount of disk space the system uses to store old, closed-out subcontracts. Typically, once a job is purged in Job Cost (JC), consider closing and purging its related subcontracts. The purge process does not update PM Subcontract Detail or the item detail in PM Material Orders.
If you want to purge AP invoices or paid transactions related to subcontracts, you must first purge subcontracts
The purge process deletes any claims associated with purged subcontracts
The purge process does not update PM Subcontract Detail or the item detail in the PM Material Detail form
The system compares the date(s) you enter to the values in the Invoice Date and Due Date fields in the SL Worksheet form when determining whether to delete associated SL Worksheet records
If you want to purge records in the JC module related to subcontract records, you can purge them either before or after you purge related JC records
The purge process will delete any claims associated with the subcontract that are included in the purge. Claims are created and maintained using the SL Subcontract Claims form.
