InstantDB: ALTER TABLE table DROP COLUMN bug


Peter (et al.):
 
I've seen a couple of earlier postings here dealing with this issue; I'm trying to import a set of database tables using a set of classes I've written that modify the tables' structures once all the data is copied to the new InstantDB tables.
 
I've repeatedly run into problems when I try to drop columns after some manipulations of various tables.  In some cases, I've indexed this column first, then DROP INDEX, other times I simply discard a series of columns after they're no longer needed. 
 
The errors I get suggest that something has altered the size of a record... I'll get at startup that says the length of a field is too short/long, etc.  Usually I drop the columns shortly before I shutdown the database... If I can send you any more data, I'd be happy to do so.. I'm using 3.26...
