Hi :)
One advantage of using a database should be greater stability partly due to
less ram getting used up.  There might be other things like greater control,
multi-user (maybe, but i'm not certain), maybe smaller file-size.  

Vic20 had 16kb of "memory". I had a ZX81 and eventually got a 16Kb extension
pack that plugged  into the back of it.  It kept making the machine crash. 
Accepted wisdom at the time was roughly the same as the cure for a wobbly
table.  We put a book under the computer and let the expansion pack hang
loosely off the back.  Magically no more crashes.  Well, not so many.

Yes, have a good weekend and don't worry about not replying until Monday or
whenever.  The thread stays here.  
Regards from
Tom :)
