The Pack function should only be used if directed by an Authorized Keystroke
Point Of Sale Dealer or by a Specialized Business Solutions technical support specialist.
The Pack function is used to clean up, re-index and re-build Keystroke data files. Records marked deleted cannot be recalled after a Pack has been run. A Backup should be run before the Pack function is used. A Pack cannot be run while Keystroke is running on other computers.
The pack function copies the data files (.DAT) to a temporary file (.TMP) and then reads back the records to rebuild the data files. If an error occurs during the pack function, the .TMP file(s) can be copied back to .DAT file(s).
Packing Scripts rebuilds only the data files in which the Script records are stored.
Note: BACKUP DATA FILES BEFORE using the Pack function!
