How to get to know which field is "Unused" in cm3r DBDICT?

Jump to solution

Hi Experts,

I would like to know if am having any unused field in "cm3r" dbdict so that instead of creating a new one, I can use the existing one.

Is there any way to find out the same in SM? I am using SM v9.30.

 

Regards,

Avi

Honestly, the best way to look to see if a field is unused is to look at table in the database itself. 

From a best practice perspective, I do not recommend using an existing field for a new purpose.  That can lead to negative results.  If you need a new field to store something in.....then you need a new field and you should create one. 🙂
