The suppress_new_columns parameter indicates that the redefine command sets the active columns to 0 in the DATAITEMS and DATATABLES entries resulting from DMSII reorganizations that add DMSII items. The suppress_new_columns parameter is useful when you want to keep your relational database tables intact after a DMSII reorganization, particularly if the added column will cause existing application to fail. If this is the case, set suppress_new_columns to True.
