Reply to: Load Access Forms in XMetaL?

Could you give a screenshot of the dialog and describe what is fix and what is to be selected or entered by the user? A static SQL statement is simple to query a database and display the values in a dialog. But your words may indicate that the user has to enter that SQL statement on the fly? Or select one out of a given choice?
Maybe you could elaborate on your use case? Eg. you have 10 valid attribute values that should be selectable in a dialog.
(Attribute values could be defined in schema or DTD, however, in some cases the flexibility is needed to define them in a database.)
Please let us understand what the benefit of reuse of a MS Access Form is over developing an XMetaL dialog.
