Hi Rick,

I had missed the fact that you said you already had the database - that 
makes it a much easier problem :-)

While I don't have any Livecode code for this, I do have some C code for 
a (probably) very similar problem.

If you can describe the format of your database, and the query you want 
to make, I'll see if what I have is a good starting place, and then 
convert the C code if practical.
