Subject: Perfect Filer question
I am posting this message for a friend. Mail responses to me at
We are having a problem with Perfect Filer running on a Kaypro with
a 10M hard disk. When we delete a record, the index goes away as it
should. However, the record is still in the database, and is printed
when we print our reports. We have tried to get around this temporarily
by creating a 'deleted' field in the record, but the 'deleted' records
still take up space (of course) and there seems to be no way of copying
only selected records from one database to another.
Any ideas on what we are missing (or the program is lacking), or
suggestions on ways to get around this (a BASIC program maybe?) would
be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your help! Mike Blackwell
