Hi David,

your suggestion is precious, as much as Kristof idea of using the NULL 
value for services.

Having a checkbox/flag to say that a product is in fact a service seems 
to be a clean and smart solution.


ps: sharing ideas is such a powerful mean of common growth ... let's use 
the tools we have (like this list, so silent at times :-)
