Booth,
We call that the Defaults file. Does exactly what you are describing. I 
wonder if they were developed separately, or if we have people that have a 
shared background? I think it happens all the time in R & D that like ideas 
are generated/created by different teams, but it's pretty amazing to see it 
in action.

I'll definitely move the access to the defaults file into a procedure as part 
of the new release. We're using it all over in place of data areas.

Ron
