QuestionDatabase - Use number or character? Pin
julian@giant1-Aug-14 4:02
memberjulian@giant1-Aug-14 4:02 
What are people's preferences for using numbers or letters for a field that indicates the status of something? If something is 'In Progress' you might use the letter 'I' in a Char field or a 1 in a number field for instance. As soon as the record is 'Complete' it get updated to a 'C' or a 2 for instance.

My preference is number, so that they can easily be turned into an enum at the code end. It causes arguments at work like you wouldn't believe....!

Anyone care to make a view?
