Hi Alan, Markus and Fidel !

Thanks for the feedback. I will test the improvements of 2.5, although indeed one cannot expect magic from a poor design.
I'm also expecting the big disappointment.
Our database is also inherited from the dBase era :-) And yes the mess never stops adding :)

Many thanks and good evening...
