Well done Richard. I knew that this was possible, hence my suggestion 
for the moderator to ask someone who had already done it! I would 
recommend that the archive remains a txt file (a SINGLE one at that 
so that it can be searched more easily). It can always be updated at 
regular periods (6 monthly perhaps?) and then stored on a web server 
somewhere. How large is it at the moment?
