TFTM offers a very powerful set of Database item purge choices for you to use to maintain your Team Database.  Click on File from the Main menu Bar and then Purge.  TFTM will display a list of Database item purge choices as follows.



Warning:  Once any of the Purge operations have been completed, there are no "'recovery" options other than Restoring your Database from a previous Backup.



Purge Athletes/Results

Choose this purge option when you wish to selectively remove athletes, with or without their meet results.


Use the Athlete Filters to selectively remove athletes, for example, you might want to remove all of your Senior athletes from your Database, or, you might want to purge all the athletes in a particular Group or Subgroup or Age Range.


Use the Purge Options
