Delete Datasets That are No longer Valid

  • 1.  Delete Datasets That are No longer Valid

    After years of neglect, I'm trying to clean up my CA-7 databases.  I have a number of datasets that are no longer created.  when I list some of them, they are showing that they are used by jobs that have long been deleted.  How do I get rid of these datasets that are pointing to jobs that no longer exist ?

    Either go to the DSN screen and delete each one or do what I do and have a batch job that deletes them.
