Oh, I see. So I should explicitly set Insert.SQL with P_something and
it should work... Ok, it's ok, but it's confusing, since the
documentation state the equivalence of MasterLinks and
MarterParamsLinks, and that parameter name is not mandatory, while
there is this aspect to keep in consideration if you insert records.
I think Helen should point this out in her GSG and you could, if
possible, write the automatic generated (if none is explicity set)
Insert statement taking that in account.
But, bside all, what are the advantage, if any, of one solution
respect the other (MasterLinks/MarterParamsLinks)?
