I'll have to look into views.  I thought this was just on SQL
server/express.  But again, I may be wrong, in my experience clients
don't like to hear "That's not possible.", or "You can't do that."  They
tend to get doubtful in my abilities.  I hear "I just want it to work."
It's then my job to make it work as close as possible to what they're
expecting, if possible.  In this case, I'm in favor of scripting.
Besides, it's kinda fun to move data around and have it where and when
the user expects it.
