The person who told me about this - can you please ZIP and e-mail your
database to me. I tried to duplicate this with a NEW database (only a few
names) and all worked fine. Therefore, I assume there is something strange
inside particular databases that actually cause this. If I had such a
database and can duplicate the bug, I am sure I can fix it.

Thanks, Ira
