Right, the options, in my view at least, are: 1) keep it as-is 2) make WITH CHECK mandatory 3) keep WITH CHECK optional, but default it to 'false' instead If an administrator really wants WITH CHECK to be 'true', then they can always add that clause in explicitly, but that really shouldn't be the default. For my part at least, I'm still preferring #1, but if there's a consensus around #2 or #3 among the others interested then I'm happy to make the actual code changes required. Thanks! Stephen
