Note Records


Doug Byway
 

Hello
I am in the process of cleaning my FH project, and I notice that in the Records window for 'Notes' there are many records with no Description and/or links = 0'
1. Are these a problem?
2. What  causes these to be generated?
3. As they appear to be spurious, how do I delete them?
Regards
Doug

Doug,

 

1. Whether they are a problem is somewhat subjective.

They do no harm, especially if they have no text or 0 Links, but they consume a small amount of space and may be a distraction.

 

2. Have you imported your Project from some other product in the past?

That is the most likely cause.

 

3. See FHUG Knowledge Base ‘Delete One or Many Records’

Thanks, Mike.
There were many so I deleted all with zero links  using the Named List method.
