you can delete data through QM,
but deleting data does not reduce the database size because the database structure is fixed.
you will need to do a database cleansing.

Is there any other way to reduce the Db, other than running this
gbak file? In my view this is total nonsense not to be able to navigate
to the data files & manually delete them. In addition to this fix, it seems to
me when i create the new Db i wont have access to historical data in
various formats.....Thanks

Dear ed roche,

There is no other way to reduce the database at the moment. This fix won't affect your historical data.
