Subject Re: recursive expansion of property names
Date Wed, 23 Jun 2004 22:17:28 GMT
I know I can merge the 2 properties into a 3rd property to get the final 
value but I was hoping that I would be able to do it without increasing 
the number of properties I use by 50%.  With the property copy thing, I 
have to create a new property name for each pair of properties I want to 
reference this way.
