I have already been told be the lead programmer, in no uncertain terms, that we will be using stored procedures over his dead body. I'm fighting a serious case of "If it ain't Cobol, it ain't shit". It's going to take time to win this battle. In the meantime, I have to give him what he wants. If nothing else, I will be able to say "I told you so" when it turns out to not work as well as it should.
