Question:
We are performing some database cleanup and have stumbled across some Repository tables created several years ago that have OLD in their name.  For example, DBXIEW.OLD_IEW_SUBJAREA.
Are these tables with OLD in their name still being used by the current 7.2 Repository?
Answer:
Tables with OLD in their name are no longer used by the Repository application.   Back in release 4.0 there was a conversion step of the upgrade that renamed existing tables to OLD and created new tables.  The data was then loaded from the OLD tables to the New ones.    The OLD tables were not deleted as part of that process.
