Rebuilding Accessory History

Sometimes it may be necessary to rebuild the log history records for accessories. This may be required if you created flight logs for an aircraft but forgot to install an accessory. You may also have created logs for an aircraft and forgot to remove an accessory. There are also other circumstances which may require a rebuild to take place.

If you choose to rebuild the history for every accessory be warned that this could take some time if you have a large database.

When this tool is select the following status window appears


Immediately after this window is shown the following warning screen appears.


This screen is telling you that when running this tool, every "log" history record will be deleted for each accessory but only after the accessory is checked for consistency. The log records are the hours and fuel logs. The create, install, and remove records will not be deleted. The program goes through each accessory one by one. For each the following steps are taken

  1. Make sure a creation history record exists and if not create one.
  2. Make sure the install/remove records are in a consistent order. For instance you can not have two install or remove records in a row.
  3. Delete all log history records
  4. Recreate all log history records using the install and remove history to determine when the accessory was installed in various aircraft.

The number of failed accessories is also shown. There are a few type of errors that can occur. Please see the Rebuild Errors section for more detail.
