What questions do *you* ask of a DDR?

I've started playing with the full DDR xml and wanted to find out what kinds of questions users generally want to find a quick answer to.  If you've worked with fmXRaySpecs or fmXRayTables, you'll know that I generally work on small, fast tools that can be of use mid-process, so I'm not trying to build something monolithic that can answer every question about everything.  InspectorPro, BaseElements and CrossCheck have that market sewn up nicely.

 

That said, 9 times out of 10, when I run a DDR it's to answer one of the following questions:

  • What references this field?
  • What calls this script?

 

So, what questions do *you* ask of a DDR?  I'm looking for those questions where you lament having to run a full DDR export / import cycle because you just have this one simple question...

 

Thank you very much for your consideration.
