One of the reasons that I don't place a key on a physical file has to do with potential damage of an access path. You can tell me whether this logic is still correct. If the access path is damaged and the physical file is keyed, then the file would have to rebuilt from a restore. If the physical file is not keyed, then the damaged the logical can be deleted and recreated without a restore. Camille Brown
