  • What's the fields name? I can top it.

    A field called MfgPartNumber. What do you think is in that field? Well, sometimes, a mfgs part number for a part. Sometimes a prefix. Sometimes empty, but on private label parts only. Sometimes, a brand number.

    Sigh.
    • This is often what happens when the DBAs don't respond fast enough to developer requests or make them fill out too many forms.

      The programmers just "work around" them by repurposing some other unused field.

      DBAs: take notice!
