I was thinking that a search box, combined Next / Previous page links would be a good solution too. Then some of the other comments on this list led me to consider the value of just grabbing the scroll bar to quickly scan the list by eye - sort of a pattern recognition concept. With the Search box option, there's always that feeling that the Search engine might fail to catch something that you might catch by sight. We folks who develop software also have a tendency of suggesting the solution we know how to implement, rather than the solution the customer wants. Nathan M. Andelin www.relational-data.com
