Ah .... I stand corrected. IF a person is an application developer, and knows nothing more than application development, and moves into the field of data management, and doesn't recognize it as a distinct field and/or simply chooses to treat this new field in exactly the same way as the previous one, THEN you get what I'm describing. That's considerably more qualified that what I originally wrote; please excuse my lack of precision.
