File Generation

The File Generation/Creation program allows you to initialize any data file in the system. Initializing a file empties out any existing data and creates a brand new file with no data in it. In other words, it wipes out existing data so you can start "fresh." This can be a very handy utility in the right instances, but can be very dangerous if not used properly! Please use with EXTREME CAUTION!
To regenerate a data file, do the following:

  1. Select System > Utilities > System > File Generation/creation from the RTA main menu (STSF).
  2. Read the message displayed.
  3. Call RTA to obtain a special password.
  4. Answer many questions regarding the data you wish to delete (only because we care).
  5. Enter the password given.
  6. Select the file(s) you wish to regenerate and choose Regen file.
  7. Read the message displayed and choose Yes to confirm.
