It does the lines, and works very nice:

10000 records
20000 records

What you want is nice, but not very usable IMHO. To calculate %, gbak
would have to select count(*) on each table just to get the clue, and
that could take *long*. Backup is enough slow as it is now, I wouldn't
like it to be more slower.

I consider gbak a DBA utility, not an end user one.
