Controlling your Versions

A handy hint from one of my colleagues (thanks SG) is to populate the VERSION field on each record with a unique number for each of your various data sources (ie 1000,2000,3000) to allow for easy identification of converted data at a later date, as well as the allowing for identification of the associated conversion stream which created this record (assuming each source has a different set of mapping rules).
Comments:

We've been doing this for the last year and a half. It's proved invaluable, saved us many times by allowing us to re-convert portions of the data. And it's an easy way to determine which interface your data came from.
