No, and that's the whole point. If you share persistent data, and you don't have standards, you get an unrecognizable mess.

If you impose rigid standards on data as presented to the user, you prevent the user from "doing whatever the user wants".

I wish there could be user interface that would make the data "look like" PICK data to you, while the real underlying data is actually in 1NF, and maybe more. Or how about a PICK with an SQL interface? Received on Wed Apr 14 2004 - 10:27:39 CDT
