Introduction/Summary:
In creating custom NetVoyant view or adding epacks, you may encounter problems or errors that require you to clean up mistakes.  You can use the NQWebTool to delete those views.

Environment: 
NetVoyant 7.1+

Instructions:
1. Backup the NPC Database.  You can do this by stopping the NPC and MySQL services and making a copy of the \NetQoS\MySql51\data folder.

2. Locate the names of each of the views that you would like to delete.

3. Use the command line to enter the following using the full view names that you located in step 2 :   nqwebtool.exe -deleteView "<VIEWTITLE>

Additional Information:
Using this command will remove the view from both the NPC and NetVoyant systems if they exist there.  If there were syncronization issues that caused the views to not exist properly in both NPC and NV, this command will let you know that, while deleting the view wherever it does exist.
