Have you ever collected data and uploaded the data back into OMNITREND® only to realize that you have duplicate data in your database? As a technician,  you are pressed for time and your boss needs that report like yesterday. Every so often, when uploading the data you can get distracted by other people or from trying to juggle too many things at once, and you inadvertently upload the data twice.

You can delete the duplicated data without having to delete each one by one! Here’s how:
• Click Tools
• Select Report
• Select OMNITREND Web
• Click OK
• Click Database
• Select Database Utilities
• Select Data cleanup
• Once the data cleanup is complete click Close
• In OMNITREND click Database
• Select Database Utilities
• Select Compact & Repair

Once the Compact & Repair process is complete you can go into Machinery Manager, drill down into your database, select the task and then click the Edit Meas. Data tab on the right-hand side of the screen, and you will notice the duplicate data has been deleted.
