Bit confused as to this issue.. So its just the syntax we're discussing, not not the logic? I still don't see an issue with testing for nothing... The original post suggested we t'est for the positive' instead, wihich I disagree with. Consider: If Ralph IS NOT 'AtHome' Then 'Ring Ralph on Mobile' End If as oppsoed to: If Ralph IS 'InCar' OR Ralph IS 'AtWork' OR Ralph IS 'AtTheShop' OR Ralph IS 'AtTheFooty' etc... .. Its obviously better to test for the negative in some cases...

You are. But take it as a positive label - there is too much sloppiness around. /gustav _______________________________________________ dba-Tech mailing list dba-Tech at databaseadvisors.com http://databaseadvisors.com/mailman/listinfo/dba-tech <http://databaseadvisors.com/mailman/listinfo/dba-tech> Website: http://www.databaseadvisors.com <http://www.databaseadvisors.com> IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ ******************** This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and may contain information protected by law from disclosure.
