This is a quick guide on how you can empty all of the records that is stored on a mysql table. This is useful for testing purposes, when you want to declutter the database. You can also think of different things where to use the truncate function if you’re creative.

<?php
 
include('conn.php');
 
query_database("truncate table purchase_transactions", "onstor", $link);
query_database("truncate table sales_transaction", "onstor", $link);
query_database("truncate table vendor_credit", "onstor", $link);
query_database("truncate table supplier_table ", "onstor", $link);
query_database("truncate table reports", "onstor", $link);
 
query_database("truncate table customer_table", "onstor", $link);
query_database("truncate table customer_credit", "onstor", $link);
query_database("truncate table categories", "onstor", $link);
 
 
?>
