> > I have an application being used by about 30 users at a time. I need to change a few local views. If I modify the views, all application users will be impacted immediately and everyone will be using the modified views immediately, with no new executeable needed, right? I'm wondering what the dangers of doing this are. If problems result, I should be able to just modify the views back to their original state and everything will be fine, right? I'm sure I've done this before, but I'm just very nervous about doing something that will be a big problem to un-do.

That's a good idea and I've done that in the past, but it's not that easy anymore since I'm using two databases (one on Foxpro and the other SQL) and they are both enormous. After getting your response, I tried it on the last copy I have available and it worked fine but I'm the only user on the copy and I couldn't test all the functions so I don't think it's a complete test. I appreciate your help, though! Thanks.
