I have done basic 1st normal form.
The reason for increasing my number of columns was to reduce my number 
of TEMPLATES a data capturer has to work with in TELEForm (TELEForm 
being my front-end to capture data). 2nd reason is to reduce the size of 
my questionnaire.

Thanks,
Hlomiza

No offense, but 1600+ columns is pretty much always a
design flaw.  What are you trying to achieve with that layout?


Cheers,
