Here are the steps to cleanup the in-progress task on MS SQL Server.

1.  Execute the sql script contents of this file: Create stored procedure clean_in_progress_task_withWF.txt.
This script creates a new stored procedure called: clean_in_progress_task_only_withWF

2.  The next execute contents of the file called:  Query to list only in progress task_withWF.txt
This script will give you a list of the in-progress task that will be removed. 

***You will need to modify the "last_access_time" for your time period you would like to clean.  
***Make sure the environmentid OID number is correct. More on the ime_id or OID value is below
***BE CAREFUL - This script will also remove WorkFlow task at are in progress.

3.  Next to clean in-progress task execute the MSSQL stored procedure: clean_in_progress_task_only_withWF

@cutoff_time =  This value represents the cutoff date/time value. All records in one of the pending states prior to this date/time stamp will be subject for removal. Example:  08/29/2018 12:59:59 PM  
@chuck_rec_count= This value represents the number of records that will be processed prior to a commit being performed on the table. (the default setting for this value is 500)
