Can we erase all History info for all contacts?

[ Edited ]

In our database, we have a thousand or two contacts with a few History entries. We'd like to erase all of the History info for all contacts in the DB as this is not a field we use.  Any way to do this in one fell swoop?

Thanks for any suggestions.

You can do that using Tools | Database Maintenance but that won't stop history entries from being made. Several functions in ACT! automatically create history entries in the history table. That means that clearing the history table would only be temporary.
