Removing Unused columns containing no data of value.
I have changed several schemas in my project during development. None of the changes required moving (saving) data since this is a test system (new) that is not yet deployed.
I have several “unused columns” warnings in the log file because of these changes.
I looked at the other entries in the questions about the “best” way to change a schema and my question is: Can I “ALTER” the tables to remove the columns given that the data contained within the columns is of no value?
Yes you can remove the columns that you are
WARNed about are unused without problem.
