Hehehe... calm down, Helen. :) And thanks for the helps, I really apreciate it.
As I said before, the problem which make me start this thread has been worked
out. The error comes from Delphi database component I used in my program.

Yup, you're right Helen. :)

I understand this from the beginning. I just suggest for a better approachment.
Since the _default_udf_ used in most databases, it'd be much more easier if the
default udf automatically declared in all databases. At least, save some punches
on the keyboard. :)

Thanks for the help from all of you guys. :)
