Keystroke Point of Sale Help

Store Link - Pack Store Transfer Files

The Pack function should be used only 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 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 Store Transfers rebuilds only the data files in which the Store Transfers are stored.

From the Special Menu, Select Pack.

Enter a date that falls within the date range of the file to be packed. Store Transfer data can be located in more than one file.

Note: BACKUP DATA FILES BEFORE using the Pack function!
