Delete an existing table: DELETE (DEL)

This command will remove an existing query table and all its associated other tables, e.g. LIST file(s), from the disk. It is recommended to use the DELETE function to remove, in particular, large tables if they are no longer needed, and thus free disk space of the captive account for the user's own further usage, and also for other archive users.


In interactive mode ARCQUERY will prompt for confirmation of the DELETE operation on a table.
