There is no better, faster way to write reliable and fast update programs,
especially if you have a bunch of files to update.  Matching records
solves another whole subset of common programming tasks including the
summing of group totals.  In any event, the cycle works and cycle programs
are written every day.  *grin* There is nothing more fun then a neat 16
line program that does it all.
