My ovoidance of data dictionaries and data aware views has been well documented, but over the past week I have been writing a replacement for a small program that was originally written in Access by somebody else. Because it didn't have too many wierd things to be considered I thought "what the hell" and dove in using DDs and DDOs.... the whole shabang. Well almost, I avoided doing hard coded relationships ... (something that I loath).

Anyway, I am happy to report that it has gone quite well and made shorter work than hand coding everything as I normally do. I wouldn't say that I am a total convert, but feel that I have moved up the ladder a few steps
