Data Dictionary Tables


m-Power application specifications (metadata) are stored in an internal database. While you should never need to access any of this metadata directly within these tables, the information is provided in the event an m-Power developer wishes to view this metadata directly.

Customers are advised to never change metadata directly in these tables as doing so could corrupt an application/dictionary.
