Unfortunately I must not have made myself clear; ALTER or DROP were not my question but they were your suggestion. My question was, and has been, about UPDATE and DELETE, and when you suggested the DDL trigger rather than a DML answer (which I haven't found but that is definitely because I haven't looked everywhere yet), I thought you were pointing me in a direction and suggesting that I use my head to figure it out. That has been your style much of the time when you answer here, and I respect that because that's how one learns how to do things.

I hate to do it, but I must very respectfully say that you are wrong. The subject *is* UPDATE or DELETE, and since I'm the one who started the thread on that subject, I believe that I'm in a better position to know what the subject of my question is... which is why I apologize for not having made myself clear. :-(

Well I didn't *think* it was, but since I don't know these things, that's why I come here to research. I'll look again at asktom, thanks for the suggestion.
