Yes, I understood that...

and then I searched the FB posts waaay back and read up upon charset
OCTETS and I saw it was for holding any chars with an ord value of 0
to 255...

So my thought was, if charset OCTETS is benefical for my PK's, might
it not also be helpful for the entire DB?

Again, this was just more to learn about OCTETS and to see what I
could learn... (I cannot wait for Helen's book! :)

Thanks again,
