Yes, certain things complicate matters (SKIP being one of my main
deterrents on things like this), but I used to use a dBase
engine--under VB1--that was written entirely in pure VB and it worked
extremely well, with support for indexes, memos, etc.. Of course, I
wasn't going against 50M DBs... :)
Without SKIP working properly, it would be a real PAIN just because of
how you'd have to make it work.
