Hello Jon,

The technique is explained here: https://www.itjungle.com/2008/10/08/fhg100808-story01/<https://www.itjungle.com/2008/10/08/fhg100808-story01/> I'm sure I've rewritten that in a more modern style but can't find the reference. That one uses a fixed array size but the technique with dynamic memory is the same.

It's been a while but now I have time to look after some stuff. Again, thanks for the hints and advice. I'll keep the sorting stuff in mind, maybe it will come in handy some time.

I'm more concerned about the fact that when a subfile is loaded with data, someone else might change the data underneath (in the PF) and you won't see that change until the SFL (or the array beforehand) is reloaded. I don't have any insight how serious this issue might be in practice. And depending on overall record count vs. people who actually work with the records, that issue may never arise.

Any thoughts on that?

:wq! PoC
