no need to get upset about it.

But even with the additional checks you describe, I think it's a bandaid approach. If you really don't trust uses to delete data, do not give them that privilege.

Give them the update privilege so that they can change a status field from active to inactive for instance. Received on Mon Nov 11 2002 - 17:18:38 CST
