2. Tables > 2.1. Hacks 13–18

Hacks 13–18

Were it not for tables, we would have no place to store data! Tables are straightforward; they comprise rows and columns, or records and fields. So, what is there to hack?

Table design is one area in which a little customization goes a long way. Changing the default datatype and other properties speeds up development time. Without this intervention, text fields default to 50 characters. Is this a good size? That depends on your project.

Have you ever wished you could implement triggers the way SQL Server does? You can! Use the inherent events available to forms to get the same results.

Need to hide data? There’s a hack for that, too!
