Subject:Re: Tableframe And Records Trick

I do it all the time instead of multi-record objects (MRO).
I have some custom code that does not work on MRO's.  You can't make it 
have records across of course.
I also do this in reports as MRO's in reports are really problematic for 
I haven't seen calculated field issues like Steve, but I very seldom 
have 1-1 linked tables in the datamodel.  I use calc fields that call 
library methods that display 1-1 data.
