Well Michael

I firstly have to say what a really wonderful product Workbench is.
Having said that, I really do have 1 thing I would like to add to it.
I would like it if you could add "rules" to Workbench.
As in, under the table definitions, fields, there can be rules.
Rules like, if(field1_myage>200) then send_error "not possible"
or like, if(field2_email in ('%','$',...other funny characters) then send_error "not possible"

What I am trying to say is have validation rules, that are in a simple syntax and then afterwards, ideally have the workbench translates it to triggers.

Let the workbench keep clear and easy to manage rules for the tables that will help keep data quality high and everyone happy with a simple yet powerful way to manage their databases.

Best Regards
Jonathan Levin
