Not really...Also, normally one would allow the tool to generate unique
index names - for example creating a FK relation will automatically
create required indexes, adding a PK to a table also.
I'm a little surprised. Although I've got over twenty years of database
development experience, it is largely in FoxPro (a dBase improvement),
although with a little of a few others. I've not seen, and certainly
wouldn't want, an insistence on automatically named indices.
And sorry if this is off track - but I just want to be sure that you are
referring to index names and not column names
Yes, I'm definitely talking about index names.
I took up Andreas' idea of importing my dbase-type files into an HSQL LO
database. It didn't realise the tables already had primary key fields. I
usually call these iId (as integer ID fields), and so want an index
(called iId) on each table. I can't do that in HSQL.
I know there's an idea that index names should include table names, which
would completely eradicate the issue, it's just that I don't agree :-)
It's a (perhaps) interesting discussion point rather than a problem
Thanks for the info
One small step for mankind...
