truncate a random access file

1-how can i truncate a random access file so i can "delete" the field I don't
need anymore in it?

2- is there a better way to swap the field in a random access file then
reading it to put it back where u want it
fileget(1, Data, i) ' "i" is the variable used for the loop
fileput(1, Data, (i-1)) 'will put the field in the field just before him,
so i
can "delete" a certain field by
overwriting it
