Erroneous Historical A/R Aged Trial Balance Report - How do I remove obsolete balances?

When I run a Current A/R Aged Trial Balance Report and a Historical A/R Aged Trial Balance Report on the same date, the Historical Report has many obsolete credits and amounts that are not on the G/L or on the Current Aged Report.  How do I remove the old activity on this report?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
