Hi, guys...My FM documentation contains many tables, most of which are
subsets of data found in my application master table. I've switched over
from keeping the table in Excel to Access. What is the opinion of putting
the selection statement in the documentation so that each time the table
must be recreated with updated information, the statement is copies from the
table, pasted in query window and run.

Currently, this documentation is internal only. Would the answer be
different if it was also for external? Would you bother making it
conditional so only you see it, or would it give the techie people the warm
fuzzies that the data was created from a statement that they speak as a
second language?
