Yes, sounds better. Seriously: I absolutely agree that Oracle is not inclined to make it easier to use their product - after all, as was said, they sell courses and certifications, while pg tries to be easy to use. I just got the impression from the first few messages that some people think that pg has no secret tricks you're supposed to know at all. Experience counts. With all systems. (And knowing the secret tricks is what experience comes down to, basically). cheers -- vbi -- signature virus v1.0 - please use me in your own mail.
