It's just the usual decade-old Micro$haft cretinism with a facelift. In MSVC--, for example, the "relation = type" fallacy is so ingrained that each and every query was supposed to have its very own type to contain the tuples. Idiocy, pure and simple. VB's Recordset was a lot better. At least they didn't require the set of attributes in a relation to be known at compile-time.

because  my cats have  apparently  learned to type.        take me away, ha ha!
