Persistent fields are OK as long as your data schema doesn't change much, if
any. There are also many problems that people have had on these newsgroups
related to persistent fields using the fields editor that they forgot about,
etc.. To me, it's just as easy to assign events, formatting, etc. to fields
during the AfterOpen event of a dataset.
