About Database Integrity

The Database Integrity checking process inside ManageMore ensures that your database is consistent and reliable. In the event that a hard drive crash, power failure, virus, or other cause of a data base corruption occurs, the program has the ability to correct itself, to ensure database integrity.

In this topic, we will discuss the functionality of the Database Integrity screens, and the various stages of the Database Integrity process, and what they entail.

Specific Stages
Select the specific stages you want ManageMore to look for issues in. Database Integrity checks will be performed only in those stages that are selected.

Starting Account No./Ending Account No.
Enter or select the starting and ending account number to search through for Database Integrity errors. Leave these fields blank to search through all accounts.

In-Depth Scan
When checked, will cause ManageMore to scan individual records for errors against other records within the database. This will cause database integrity to run considerably longer than when this box is not checked.

Recompute customer aging on each account reviewed
When checked, will recalculate the customer aging on each customer that is within the chosen account number range (all customers if the account number range was left blank).

Allow other activities while Database Integrity scan is running
When checked, will allow other users to continue using ManageMore while Database Integrity runs. This will result in a slowdown of Database Integrity, but will also not result in down time for your other users.
