Year End Copy, removing old transactions (edited title for clarity)

Arlen
Arlen Member
I currently have 5 years of register entries in my data file (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) and want to reduce my total entries to two years (2018 & 2019). I have already done year end data files for 2015, 2016 and 2017 however in my operating data file the register entries for those years remain. Is there a 'batch' or 'group' way to delete register entries other than to delete entries one at a time? Looking for a miracle shortcut.

    You should read that copy file link.  It's also how to copy just the dates you want.  It say.....You might copy part of a file if you want to copy transactions within a certain date range to start a new file for a new fiscal year,......

    Then that will get rid of the old ones that the year end doesn't clear out.

    Arlen:  I did not suggest that you copy register entries.  I suggested you review the documentation so you would learn how to create a data file with only your 2018 & 2019 entries.
