Josh, looks like you really want to book a small SQL seminar with me :)

You're correct, all you need are the 'Type 2' records that contain your
accounting information. You might have others (e.g. type 3 from
Cisco-NAS), you can delete them as well.=20
('delete from calls where acctstatustype !=3D 2' will do the job in this
case, too)
You may want to check which types you have by executing 'select * from
calls where acctstatustype !=3D 2' before using the delete command.

cu, Peter

This is from a Mail I sent to the list on January 12th:

the SQL command

'delete from calls where acctstatustype =3D 1'

(executed from SQL Enterprise manager or the Query Tool) will delete all
data records meeting the condition 'acctstatustype =3D 1' from the Calls
table in the Emerald db.

Since they are not used, this will help you to save database space.(If
you don't feel save with issuing direct SQL commands, just leave it
alone if you have enough space left.)

I do this deletions for type 1 and 3 about once a month, i assume Dale
will include it as an (automatic?) 'trim Calls table' command in a
future version of Emerald.
