Two modify requests are needed to change a default journal table that resides in the database being modified.

  1. The first request is used to DROP the present journal table from the system.

    The system aborts the request and returns an error message to the requestor if the journal table is being used by active data tables.

  2. After the table is dropped, a second request is required to define a new default journal table.
