This looks like an interesting approch. Indeed my idea was to store the
actual row BEFORE the append insert. I thought some kind of a pointer to
the "last" row stays valid/accessable even after the append/insert. But it
doesn't look like there is something available in this direction.
So your idea is interesting and compact enough to give it a try. I can even
generate the necessary fieldnames during runtime in a simple loop.

I'll report,whether that think is working (probably until mid of next week).
