Truncate Referenced Table

,

make a backup of your database

execute this script

then run it by using this

 

x_TruncateTable yourtablename

 

please note you may sometimes recieve errors. this is normal and happens when recreating the relationships.

 

also a table that refernces its self must be truncated manually.

 

Enjoy 🙂
