You may be able to get at some of the older archives from the InterBase
search at
Unfortunately we no longer have a newsgroup facility. A great deal of the
list archive is in the FAQ on the ibobjects website and there is much more
to come.

The Help file has a lot of info. The Delphi helpfile also includes some
discussion of datatypes suitable for keys (but not much). A good book on
database design can be a friend in need...

Next time, ask the list about a problem *before* it starts to drive you
crazy. :))
