By Mass deletion of UDMs

If I want to delete a bunch of UDM's at a time instead of going into each individual one and getting rid of it, is there a quicker way to do it?

No. (At least not from inside of JCapper.)

FYI, the delete one UDM at a time model was implemented by design. (I didn't want the user to be able to delete all UDMs accidentally.)

However, you could do it using a third party tool outside of JCapper.

For example:

The data for all of your UDM Definitions is contained in the Profile and Profile2 tables inside of the c:\2004\JCapper.mdb file.

The file extension (.mdb) means that the file itself (c:\2004\JCapper.mdb) is an Access database file.

If you were to open the file (c:\2004\JCapper.mdb) using Access, you would then be able to open the Profile table - exposing the UDM Definitions in a data grid.

From there, you could highlight multiple UDMs in the data grid - and delete all highlighted UDMs with a single press of the delete key.

And from there, using a similar procedure - open the Profile2 table - and highlight and then delete the same UDM names.
