Removing unused fields from database

This tip describes a procdure for removing unused fields from database.

Very often when you are developing a database you create some fields and afterwards you realize you don't need that field. When creating a view you will see that the name of that field is still in the field selection. In stead of making a new copy of that database you can use an easy way to remove these fields : use the COMPACT -C option.

load compact mydatabase.nsf -C
