If you are not using a software program specifically developed for book inventories, we need to establish a method for deleting books you no longer have in your inventory.
There are four possibilities:
1. Include a status field when you set up your database or spreadsheet, for example - For Sale or Sold in the status. You could name the field "Status" and use S for Sold and F for For Sale; or A for add and D for delete; or Y for available and N for not available.
2. Alternatively add quantity field where you simply need to add 0 (zero) in the field.
3. If you do not want to include a status or quantity field in your database or spreadsheet, you could send a file called delete.txt and include exactly the same fields as you do when you upload a regular (for sale) file.
4. Send a file containing a list of the book numbers you want to have deleted. Each book number must be on a line by itself. The file should be named delnum.txt or delnum.tab. (The extension should match the custom conversion we have set up for you, if there is one).
