Ah, the benefits of civil responses over flames - turns out we're on common ground. I have some troubles with tbl as a prefix as well. I tend to use it in VB/Access, where knowledge of the datatype - query v. table makes sense in code. Within Oracle it is, I agree, a bit of a repetitive redundancy.

And I think that we're in agreement that _some_ kind of naming convention is a good thing.

Right now I'm working on an application where some of the data will reside in Oracle - CONTROL_LIST, for example. Within Access there is a link to that table called tbl_CONTROL_LIST. It's enough to give me what I need to manage the Access code without worrying about unnecessary overhead in Oracle.
