Having recently migrated myself from one system to another, and hearing you
say you've got a lot of manually entered data, it sounds to me like you're
probably best off carrying the whole DB over rather than sorting through
it...  Just my $0.02.


On another channel there were pictures of a zoo in Miami, Florida, which had
been whacked by a hurricane and there were pictures of ducks and tall elegant
birds swimming in the wreckage except they didn't know it was wreckage.  It
was just the world.  - Douglas Coupland                        <adam at baz.org>
