Its hard for me to escape the idea that buying cheaper interactive processor on a "special deal" could be the equivalent of borrowing even more money to pay my bills while interest rates are down.... At least that's what history tells me. If you figure the list price of the interactive feature and the cost of green streak promotion then put the difference towards reducing the reliance on interactive CPW then you might be able to afford the interactive feature on the upgrade after this one :) Havings said that, is the query processing significant ? This is any easy one to fix based on how long the estimator thinks the query will run. You can force everything over x minutes to batch rather than letting your users decide. Regards Evan Harris
