    Hello there

    I'm using NTKDBU 2.5 for handling DBF tables and I must admit it is a very intuitive and effective tool. But, can't find a simple way to mark for deletion all records or a group of records in one shot. Until now, the only way i found to do that is to select records one by one then click the 'Delete/Recall' button...
    Do we have something similiar to the DELETE ALL FOR <condition> command?
    TIA
    Walter

    Hi Walter,

    >Do we have something similiar to the DELETE ALL FOR <condition> command?
    No, there's no button for a so-called "Delete All" command.
    Fortunately, it is very easy to do this with the GUI. Just proceed like this or see attached screenshots:

    assuming the DBF table is already open...
    1. Put the cursor on the first record;
    2. Click the nub button (on the left-sifde of the 1st col/field) in order to hilight the whole record;
    3. Put the cursor on any field, then click right and select the 'Invert Selection' option that appears within the context menu;
    4. Now, all records are selected except the first one - so click again on its nub button to include it within the selection;
    5. Click the 'DELETE' button at the bottom screen.
    That's it!

    Now, all the DBF's records are marked for deletion.
    Tip: just click the 'RECALL' button to undelete them all (as long as the selection is active)

    Et voila simple as that!

    HTH.

    N.B. For deleting a group of records (Delete all for <mycondition>) - just apply a FILTER with a valid condition prior to proceed the same way as shown in the above.
