Gregory,
There are three big benefits from using the one-card approach with Rev. 
The programs will run faster.
The stacks will be smaller.
It will be easier to build menus.

BTW, I have found "repeat for each line whichLine" works faster than 
"lineOffset" and more reliable than "filter with/without".

You will miss
HC's ability to easily find data in a specific field.
The ability to refer to data by field name, instead of by item number in a 
record string.
The ease of relayering fields in an entire stack by rearranging them on a 
card.

Good luck and best wishes.
Paul Looney
