Rebuild Lists

The Rebuild Lists command rebuilds Collect!'s meta-data tables for access rights and printable information, and also updates definitions for any import maps that exist in your database. Select File from the top menu bar and then select Maintenance from the drop-down choices. Select the REBUILD LISTS button on the Database Maintenance menu.

You must be signed into Collect! using Exclusive mode as a user who also has a user level 99 assigned to the operator.

Collect! will immediately prompt you, if you are not signed into Collect! using Exclusive mode, or Collect! will begin the process.

During the process, a message box on the screen lets you know what is happening.

When the rebuild process is finished, you may want to exit Collect! and sign back in using Shared mode with your normal operator ID and Password.
