The "get rid of them" concept only works if the customer only uses the DF app for looking @ info. I have a customer that insists on similar things & wants to be able to see them in 100's of spreadsheets that they've written over the years. To make the "create on the fly" concept work would require that these spreadsheets run a DF app to get them. Then there are other tools companies may use to query data - Dynamic AI for example.

Sometimes you are just stuck with storing data.
