Packing slips that have been billed can be removed at any time. Standard operating procedures suggest that packing slips be left on file for at least 3 months. Packing slips are used only to help create invoices. Because of this, there is little need for them after the invoices are created.
Old packing slips can be deleted by selecting Delete Old Packing Slips on the Maintenance, Delete Old menu. The following parameter screen is displayed for user input:
Enter the cutoff date. After the STORE <F5> button is pressed, all billed packing slips with a filled date on or before the cutoff date are removed permanently from the system.
After the deletion process finishes, it reports on the number of records deleted.
