Yesterday I created a database and set a TEXT column. The "created" occured in the past, but the
column was, is and will be TEXT type. So which should I use? "has" or "had"? Yesterday I created a
table which has/d a TEXT column.

In this case, it should be "has" (because the database and the TEXT column both still exist and
will, presumably, continue to exist) but could also be "had". It is better to replace "which has" or
"which had" with "with": "Yesterday I created a database with a TEXT column".

Yeah. thanks

Also thanks to the kind men who post detailed explanation to my mail box. But I seldom use that mail
box, so please don't mail there. Thank you.
