Good morning all

I've recently discovered that there's a stored procedure available in SQL 2008/2012 which automatically clears down the SQL Server Agent job histories, thus making it far quicker to get information on a job's historical performance.

Can anyone tell me if there's a SQL 2005 version of the sp_syspolicy_purge_history procedure?
