Using the delete duplicates tool is there a way in Mapbasic to have it run through a large number of tables, or do you have to manually select each table and run the tool?

Cheers, Jon

You can find the MapBasic source code for the Delete Duplicates tool in your MapBasic installations folder: ..\Samples\MAPBASIC\DeleteDuplicates

With this you can modify the code to loop thru all open tables or modify the dialog to let the user pick more than one table.
