Thanks Peter - much appreciated! This is gonna save me alot of time - or 
it would if I hadn't have already re-implemented it!?!

Is there an easy way to check input with this method? Can I provide some 
instruction in my table module that will force a value to be verified 
using a specific function before the database is populated? I guess I'm 
looking for some kind of accessor/mutator? Specifically I want to verify 
that the value I pass into my URL database field is indeed a valid URL...

Thanks again!
