In another thread, the O.P. had a question about a large table with over 100
columns. Is this usual? Whenever I make a database, which is not often, it
ends up with tables that rarely have over to columns, and usually less than
that. When normalized, my tables rarely get very wide.

Without criticising the O.P., since I know nothing about his application, I
am curious how it comes about that such a wide table is justified.
