Reuse the same but completely new ENTITY

How to archive existing ENTITY data in MENDIX and reuse the same but completely new ENTITY to store data again?   For example, after archiving the registration data of students from the previous session, continue using the same ENTITY to accept registration data from students in the next session.   Finally, I need to create a button to view my previously archived data for annual statistics purposes.

Hi Jeff, You can create 2 entities (identical structure). You would use one as your main (current) dataset. If you need to archive your data, you can copy the records (via create object or you can check out the clone functionality in the community commons marketplace module) to the second entity and delete from the original and you can start with a blank list again.

Like for any entity, you will be able to eg create a list view or datagrid to display the archived records.
