How to clone database with no financial transactions?

Copy db :
In psql or your sql client:

Note this will clone everything.
If you want to get rid of the transactions, you will need to delete everything in the acc_trans, ar, ap, and gl tables.

Also if goods and services are used, delete from invoice and inventory as well, and if wishing to clear out all orders, delete from
orderitems and oe.
