Hi,

We have noticed a loads of tables in the goldmine database which we dont know what they are.

They all start with GM_0000 and then a 6 character code i.e. GM_0000KXJS82 – all of these tables seem to have 1 record in them.

Any ideas what these could be?

Screenshot also.

Thanks

It depends on what third party apps you might be using, I would say they are only temporary tables and can be removed

what third party integration apps do you use? if any

We have an app which imports data from an external sql server into GM using the API.

Ok just looking at one of the tables: GM_0001X42GWB

 

All the column names look like this:

 

LABEL001

LABEL002



LABEL068

 

Some of the tables are different sizes – another one I looked at runs up to LABEL080

 

All are VARCHAR(50)

 

There is only 1 record per table and it appears to be customer data – not all the fields are populated.

 

Hope this helps.

Do you use sync to outlook at all, I have seen this when using that, the temp table is never deleted

I would say its ok to delete them

Thanks GMGenius. We are going to back up the DB, delete the entries and see what happens.
