Dropping SalesLogix Tables

Having recently done and upgrade from a rather old DB to v7.0.1, I've encountered a few tables that cannot be deleted from SLX via DB manager. Examples are: USEROPTION (not the new USEROPTIONS ), and PROJECTPLUGIN

This article includes a script that drops the table and deletes records from the three SalesLogix schema meta data tables.

Here is a summary:

drop table YourTableName
delete from sectabledefs where tablename = 'YourTableName'
delete from joindata where fromtable = 'YourTableName' or totable = 'YourTableName'
delete from resynctabledefs where tablename = 'YourTableName'

Very fine, even if it should be mentioned that also the PLUGIN table contains a record (XMLSCHEMA) that is affected by TABLES "movements"...

If you do run:

SELECT data FROM plugin WHERE pluginid = 'XMLSCHEMA'

within WGADMIN you can see the entire DB's tables definitions

I think that this will be entirely rewrote once you change anything from SLX DB Manager.
But it would be interesting to understand when this plugin is read.
I'll try to trace it with SLXProfiler and let you know!
