3. Data Slice & Dice System (DSDS):
While a designing Y2K project for Union Bank, during a meeting with head of various departments, the each wanted a hierarchical search to start with different criteria like. Some wanted to start the search by social security number while the others wanted to start with account number or last name. The idea behind DSDS I had developed before was my solution to satisfy them all. With this system, users were able to start their search with no hierarchy constraint. They were able to start their search with any preferred criteria. In this video, the same technique is applied to Northwind database to illustrate its use.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Some thoughts for your consideration:
===========================

At a meeting about the design of a Y2K project for Union Bank, the heads of various departments wanted a proposed hierarchical search to start with different criteria. Some wanted the search to start with social security number while the others wanted to start with account number or last name.

The idea behind DSDS [[write DSDS out for context]] that I had developed at an earlier time was my solution here to satisfy all of their requests. With this system, users were able to start their search with no hierarchy constraint; they were able to start their search with their own preferred criteria. In this video, the same technique is applied to the Northwind database to illustrate its use.
========================
I have changed the wording to work more smoothly, and I suggest you spell out DSDS to give some context for what you had done earlier.  I hope this helps.
