Good Morning Tony,
I would like to know how you are opening the table and accordingly we
can advise you how to empty the table.

If you are using use to open the table then the command is zap but it
requires exclusive use of table.

If it is open in a query then the ways are different.

Is there a form containing the query with reference to the batch table
open at the time you want to empty the table.

Apart from the books I would recommend you go through Ken's tutorial. It
will help you in understanding the current tools.

Using ?? to print a report will not take you far in the current
microsoft windows scenario.

There was a time when I used to print whole reports including change of
Printer fonts using the ?? commands but not now.
