Well, I'm back, and I'm afraid I have to stand up and sing the "I'm a little moron" song.....

It seems I had left a couple of diagnostic outputs deep down inside the processing of the records, below the level of the code I posted here (it was inside one of the functions). I found them, removed them, and it runs now. It is slow, but I should expect that. I'll see what I can do to improve that, and if all else fails I'll just write a little C++ program to read the data and do the import using IBPP.

Thanks for your help, Lester, and sorry to have bothered the list with this....
