      Nico,

      Not all of us are anal about what questions you are allowed to ask, and Aaron is free to
      ignore any questions that are not up to his standards.

      So, ask away. The worst we can do is ignore you. ;^) (That might just mean we don't know
      the answer and are hoping someone else will.)

      David

      Hi Aron

      Just to confirm that I am doing something about this , I have just
      purchased two books:
      MySQL in a Nutshell
      and
      MySQL Reference Manual

      Now I have a lot of reading to do I will ask questions after reading
      the
      first one , hopefully it can help raise the level of my knowledge
