Master Notes

MoS has a number of “Master Note” documents which pop up from time to time while I’m checking for known problems or solutions; they get extended from time to time (and, conversely, link to some articles which are clearly no longer relevant to current versions). This is just a tidied up list of a few of the master notes that I’ve jotted down over time. The Data Dictionary overview appeared in my daily “Hot Topics” report today, and that prompted me to publish the list I’d got so far.
