Fair enough. Others use it in a way to easily drag and drop objects to the forms with proper bindings, or design grids. I am not fond of a bound control myself so I do not use it that way. I use it only because I am lazy in typing USE ThisTable SHARED IN 0 for every table I need in load event, then to close those as well in Destroy event. Plus to be able to easily "take a peek" at table structures anytime when I am coding because I never keep any list of my table structures nor create flowcharts. I simply code straight there and then.

Aside from laziness, plus the fact that I did not change SET EXCLUSIVE default value so using DE makes my tables automatically SHARED, I don't think I really have any other reason to use DE at all. LOL!
