Truncate table

Truncate table

Truncate table

(OP)
Pervasive 8.6 and 9

MS SQL Server has a 'Truncate Table..' SQL statement that will remove all date from the table and reset the PK identity field to '1'(the starting value).

Does Pervasive have a similar statement/keyword? If so what is the synatx? If not how can I acheive the same effect in Pervasive?

I have searched the Pervasive site forums and knowledge base with no luck.

RE: Truncate table

THere is no truncate command.
One way you can do it is delete all records using "delete from <table>". That will also reset the Identity field.  
If this is in an application, you could drop the table and recreate it as well.
