If you create a Naming relationship on an object and you add an instance such as:

   x.add Obj,"12"

you cannot access this object by name, such as:

   set y = x("12")


If you use a string that can be evaluated as a number (such as "12") for the name of an object in a naming relationship, you cannot access that object by that name. The reason is that the repository evaluates any string that could be a number as an index rather than a name.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This bug has been fixed in Visual Studio 97 Service Pack 3.
