I am an old RPG programmer and the question has come to mind: If your shop is going forward in all new SQL development (I can see the use of keys for old Apps) but going forward is there any use for the old traditional keyed field in DDS or new files not used by old Apps?

Thanks in advance (this is chewing on me)
