The Condense Data utility

The Condense Data utility stream lines your company data file by condensing closed transactions into summary journal entries and removing unused list elements. The utility can create a journal entry for each month in the selected period. The summary journal entries affect your accounts in exactly the same way as did the detail transactions.

CAUTION: If you are having performance issues, the Condense Data Utility is your last option to try to improve performance.
