AFAIK, you can have a primary key with more than one field. Also, if
you create any indexes, your programmers can use them as regular LFs.

In looking at the manual it appears that the only option I have for adding
a key is the primary key, at least at the table level.  If I want to use
more than one field I still have to create an index.

Since we still have some programmers using tables and indexes as if they
were PF's and LF's, I am trying to ascertain if there is any way to add a
composite primary key to a table without an index?

I assume no from what I have read thus far......but if anyone knows of a
way or can offer clarification I would be most appreciative.
