    Default Script for end user to delete user created Queries.

    From the Query by Form, Query Genie and Query by Expression dialogs the end user can save the queries they create. To delete these queries one must go to the Operations tab on the Control Panel. This is a issue if you are using the runtime or wish to restrict users access to the control panel.

    This is where the following script comes in. Run it from a button on a form or add it to the Script Favorites List on the Scripts menu option. It will give the end user an easy way to delete unneeded saved Queries that may be cluttering up the the list they see when they retrieve Queries.
