I woud really like to see the Field mapping section of the Append tool have more logic.  I regularly import from GPS to my SDE.  I cant get the schema to match up perfectly (program that exports the shapefile limits the field name length) so I did an append, every time I have to tell it that INSTALLDAT is the same as INSTALLDATE.  Why can't it figure some of this out on its own?
