To launch the wizard, use the GoldMine menu system to select Tools > Merge/Purge Records > Merge/Purge Wizard. On the initial Wizard screen, check “Merge/Purge using new criteria” and click Next. On the Select a Filter/Group screen, select “All Contact Records” and click Next to display the Merge/Purge Criteria screen. If you have imported updates to previously imported Gaming Business Directory contacts that included a ContactId, we recommend that you perform a merge/purge operation based on the combination of ContactId and either PropertyId or CompanyId as appropriate. Click New on the Merge/Purge Criteria screen to identify new criteria for selecting records that will be merged or purged. Select the field that contains the ContactId, check Exact Match, assign the criteria a weight of 30 and click OK.

Verify that the Qualifying Weight is set to the default value of 50 and click Next. When both criteria are satisfied for a pair of contact records, the calculated weight will be 30+30=60, which exceeds the Qualifying Weight required to identify a match. On the Merge Method screen, check “Keep record that was created first,” uncheck all other items, and click Next. On the Purge Method screen select “Delete the duplicate record” and click Next. On the Ready to Merge/Purge screen, click Finish. The GoldMine Process Monitor window will appear and show the status of the merge/purge process. You may also want to perform a merge/purge operation for contacts that have matching Contact and Company fields. Simply repeat the process outlined above using the Contact and Company fields.
