Deleting Matchcode Objects


When you delete a matchcode object, all the IDs for this object are also deleted. Therefore, you can only delete a matchcode object if all the IDs for the object can also be deleted, that is, no more database objects exist for these IDs. For example, no more matchcode views may exist in the database for transparent IDs of the object.
