THANKS - works beautiful! Now I just have to figure how to save the  
output into a .rec file for working on it separately and I used  
SELECT IF or the AGGREGATE and \save option and all other ideas and  
seem not to be able to get the duplicate records saved into a new  
file - what am I missing here? Max
