Command SET DELETED Foundation
Sets whether records with deletion flags will be visible.
SET DELETED on | OFF | <lToggle>
The command SET DELETED determines the visibility of records marked for deletion. When SET DELETED is ON, all records with deletion flags in all work areas are logically filtered out. File operations which move the record pointer skip all records which have the "Deleted" status. The exception is the command GOTO, which can position the record pointer to any record, even those which are filtered out. SET DELETED ON has no influence on index files created with INDEX ON or reorganized using REINDEX. Index files contain records whether or not they are marked for deletion.
SET DELETED must be OFF when the command RECALL ALL is executed. Otherwise, the deletion flag is retained for all "Deleted" records.
