Dropping old fields from Mysql


With the new changes into erpnext there are new tables which are introduced and which in turn means that some fields become obsolete.

But the problem is that the old fields remain in the mysql table, I would like to know if we should safely drop the unused columns in the old tables like Customer table in my database also has address fields which after the address table became obsolete.

Please suggest a better way to do things so that the database is clean and lean.

@adityaduggal we don’t drop fields as a rule (incase someone wants it back), but if you want to keep things clean, feel free to drop them.

Thanks for the information, would drop them at my end only.
