It wouldn't seem to make sense to do so if Larry's correct about the
overhead of writing to them.
Note that it's not truly 'overhead' but rather the way it gets to disk. If you've got cache you're good but without it repeated writes to the same *DTAARA translate to repeated writes to disk where repeated writes to a Row in a Table don't, UNLESS you close the file every time!

Oh, and *IF*.....? Perhaps you'd better watch over your shoulder during your next round of PTFs, the Dr Demands respect. :-)
