This thread has been an interesting discussion. It is a similar problem 
to that I raised recently, for about one tenth the records but more 
fields each, and the outcome confirms both the direction I was taking 
from that earlier thread and also the ease with which I will ultimately 
be able to do what at first looked a daunting conversion. In fact, even 
though it will be done in a list/stack paradigm, the data set will be 
much closer to a Normal Form than was ever the case in HC, and most of 
my old data management and integrity routines can disappear 
accordingly. Thanks everyone, for the list and for the product.
