Hi All

Thanks for all the responses to this.

Looking at Chris' stuff below it seems clear that the table field is 
very much a "project in progress"!

I think I'll keep well away from it for now as it looks far too flaky 
for reliable use. Once RunRev have a fully worked out table object, 
then I'll jump back in again as it's something I'd really like to 
take advantage of - but it's got to be solid and require no more than 
a reasonable amount of coding support as well.

Cheers for now (watching this space...)
