Hi Aaron,

Thanks for taking a look. It's a similar problem but I don't think it's
quite the same. I discovered that the prototype code I posted worked
pretty much straight away, so I've just implemented a method like that
in each class. All the squirly little differences between the individual
tables make it difficult for me to think there's going to be a general
solution, so I've moved on to other things.

Yeah, the big union is a very useful feature for my situation. I'm glad
I discovered it on this list ages ago :)

Cheers, Dave
