Hi does anyone know is using define temp-table with a like [database table] option considered bad coding standards in PROGRESS ABL. I have never heard this before and am wondering if anyone else has ever heard this. One of the person I work with consideres it bad. If the database has to change then the code has to change. Where as I would consider it good for the same reason. i.e. if you are changing the database then you need to review the code that the database affects anyway. I'm am just wondering what the general conensus is here before i say anything.
