Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It can be, provided that the request is sent through the normal approved change process. If a developer walks up to you and asks you to delete data from a table, then its probably not an approved change. However if that request comes to you through the proper change control procedures then yes.

No one should fault you for questioning the running of the script. But once you are sure that it’s been approved then yes.

    Mr Denny's answer is correct. I would add that if you are asked repeatedly to delete data from the same tables then this function needs to be added to the application system.
