I agreee. They don't so much. However this is not a Hello World sample but a practical use of CA's. If you have been following these threads you would have seen the number of "it does not work" replies as people tried to experiment without a basic knowledge, whereas if you ask me I could do that tut and get it to work in under 5.

Some of the "programmers" don't even know how to debug and single-step code.

If those systems were broken down into digestable chunks, I know I could transfer my knowledge. Since I already do know how to run, I only need pointers to adapt how I run to another environment.

Knowing how to fly a plane does not give you any knowledge to fly a 747.

You can just change the SELECTCMD property. I added the other clauses because I like to break things up.

Besides if you design your classes properly the first time, you only have to add that property for a where clause once in your base class.
