Well, I've changed my default H spec to NOUNREF.

If I have any issues, I'll see you next Tuesday while you and Susan are
doing training at our LUG.

Is there any downside to making NOUNREF the default? I have read you
debug a variable that's not used in the program if NOUNREF is specified,
but if the variable isn't used I'm not sure how often one would need to
the value when it isn't even used . . .

Oh right - it was V6 wasn't it.

Anyway - the debug thing is the only downside. Only reason I can think of
to need to see such a field in debug is to establish exactly which record
you were looking at. Perhaps none of the fields you "used" were unique so

Pretty unlikely scenario and one easily fixed.
