If you wish to purge ALL of the old versions in the current working directory at the same time instead of just the current object make a mapkey to open a 'system window' . The window should open in the current working directory. Inside the window manually type in ( purge ). I first like to do a directory list ( dir ) to see how many files are there then type ( purge ) to clean out the old versions and another dir list to verify the files were cleaned out (just a habit). When you are done, just close the system window.
