Tidy Sage Line 500 ERP Temporary Tables via TSQL

Published / by Chris Smith / Leave a Comment

The official Sage Help has a select statement to delete temporary tables, but doesn’t allow an automated way to remove.
This script will delete tables so you must take extra care, I recommend trialing this on your Development Sage ERP system first.
Review every step and when you are happy Commit the transactions (If run all in one go it will deliberatly Rollback)

/*
This code is based on the Sage example to remove temporary tables.  Normally these are left when a binary has not exited in the normal way.
You must check to ensure the correct tables are selected as the query won't care if it picks up a user table.
