BB21S1 Bank Book Purge Reconciliation File

Purge Bank Reconciliation File

Application Overview

To keep the reconciliation process running efficiently, records need to be purged periodically. The Purge Bankrec routine is provided for this purpose.   Purge applications will archive files to a repository and those files will not be available to the system.

Run Instructions

BankBook -> Processing -> Purge Bankrec File

Select Purge application from the process window.

The following options are available:

  • Enter the data requested on the screen 
  • To exit press the ESC or F10 key when the cursor is positioned for entry of the first field on the screen 

To return to the menu bar, press the ESC or F10 key. To leave this application, press X for EXIT when positioned at the menu bar.


Enter the cash account and reconciled cutoff date to purge accumulated data. The routine will purge all reconciled transactions in the Bank Reconcile File through the cutoff date. It will also purge the corresponding records in the A/P and P/R check Reconciliation Files. This will keep processing time down to a minimum. Purging the Bankrec File will print the Purge Journal.
