Deleting a term code

Deleting term codes involves a two-step process:

  1. First, you mark the term code as deleted.
  2. Second, you reindex and pack your system, effectively wiping the term codes from the database.

If you stop after step 1, you can go back later and recall the term code, allowing you to use it once more.
