Rick:

Local sentences are in my opinion, with my data and the way I think, a
maintenance nightmare. Using Tag Type default sentences, output for an
entire group of Tags can be globally edited. Otherwise might as well
just type all text directly into a local sentence -- and I'll bet there
are TMG users who do exactly that. Bless them, and I hope they are as
happy doing that as I am NOT doing that [grin].

I think I may misunderstand what you mean by "editing", but a Memo is
just non-structured text. You have to enter (edit) it for it to even
exist. If you don't have a need for editable text, don't use Memos at
all -- and I'll bet there are TMG users who don't. Bless them, etc.
[another grin]
