     The problem that prompts this is that there is a conflict between the Query function and the data Join. I often get this when data has been prepared in one environment but then when transported to a new environment it can be a real pain to fix sources. Through many hours of testing this 'source' problem is most problematic when there is both a join and a query defined for a layer.
    I propose that we add a query function directly to the Join dialogue box:

    - this will minimise conflicts (hopefully :), and,

    - minimise layer management and make it clearer what is intended of the layer.
