Inactivating locations

Before inactivating a location, make sure that it is not used in any incomplete profiles.

Before inactivating any entry, check Query z_s_dispo_inactivatable to make sure it is not currently used in any incomplete records (RecordStatus incomplete).

We can occasionally check query Query z_s_dispo_lastUsed for entries that have not been used in a long time. If it is never used it may be an entry we no longer need, but it may also just be an entry that is rarely used.
