I have a quickbooks database with over 4 years of info on it.  Is there a way in which I can purge data from 1/01/2003 through 12/31/2003?

I want to keep the customer and template info.
Thanks!
Paul

I'd recommend that you backup your data first, then purge..

To backup:

To condense your data:

!! Once condensed, data cannot be uncondensed.
