There will probably only be two or three groups sharing 8 tables
where the data has to be distinctive, and a couple of these tables
will grow by several thousand rows per year. There are quite a few
lookups and M-D setups involved. I should probably consider a way to
move the older data out to archive tables annually anyway!

I think you're suggesting to have two different versions of the
program, with appropriate selection references changed. I should
probably give both ways a try and compare the speed.

Thanks again for your advice & time,
