Row Marking, "Automatic to Update" – The Numbers Game

“Ninety percent of baseball is mental, the other half is physical” – Yogi Berra.

As with all Berra's famous quotes, it belies logic but contains enormous truth. Baseball is about balance: old versus new, rookie sizzle versus veteran grit, the “eye test” versus analytics. Berra’s acknowledgement of the MENTAL part of baseball was prophetic, as the statistical revolution has essentially upended and revolutionized the game. Every shred of information is tallied, accounted for, and decided upon either in the offseason or in the key moments of a critical game.

The same is true in your SWE project – as a database program, each item is tallied and accounted for; and soon you'll see how to master your Component Numbers to make better decisions in the moment. 

If you’ve moved a symbol or are placing a previously named component for the first time, watch the video to learn how you can update that mark without needing a project wide update with this minimally invasive maneuver!
