You know, when it was just "Table A" and Table B," I was thinking, "Why not exchange tapes?" A couple tapes and FedEx is quicker than networks when lots of data are involved.

But it seems that you've got lots of data in lots of places. And, I'll bet, more than two tables, right? This is a very different situation.

And you expect to find answers on c.d.t? I admire your optimism, but I'd need some portraits of presidents before telling anyone how I did it. Received on Sun Apr 23 2006 - 19:51:39 CDT
