    Default $$ tables

    Can anyone explain what a table called history_dup.$$M is and what it is for?

    Thanks,

    I was concerned because we experienced an "a miraculus accident that just happened don't cha know" that took out all of the tables in the app. I had to add them back in which brought bunch of old test files that hadn't been deleted. The app is now running again but I find things I have never seen before from time to time.

    Those $$*.* files don't always get deleted like they should. Check out this thread for a Del_dollar() function to get rid of them more effectively:
