RE: DDS field reference equivalent in SQL



fixed

You might want to ask yourself why you would need such functionality in the first place. In a properly normalized database design you will not have duplicitive data in multiple tables.

Better get your developers up to speed with this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database_normalization

Subject: DDS field reference equivalent in SQL

An important part of making field length changes easier on Iseries is to use a field reference file to inherit attributes from other fields & files.

Is there an equivalent in SQL?

Thanks
