The past discussions brought about by Tim's notes data entry problem
pointed up some decent update control techniques, but IMHO anything that
lets a user key away to their hearts content only to be told afterwards
that there efforts were for not, isn't "user friendly".

Did I miss a point in his request?  Was Tim planning on doing any updating
of the master record?  I thought he wanted to just spin some comment
records, up to 20 at a time, out to a detail file and he was needing to
assure the records remained in proper sequence and not scattered or
randomly mixed with other comments?
