Oh my, creating an index has absolutely reduced the times it takes to
query from around 700 ms to less than 1 ms!

Thanks so much for all your help.  You've saved me!

One question:

Why would I or would I not create multiple indexes in a table? I
created another index in the same table an it's improved performance
even more.

Thanks,
Chris
