Thanks, Christian, and all who responded. I think this is almost exactly 
as it will work. The problem with using some kind of MySQL frontend is 
that this would involve some knowledge of dB's and SQL (can't be certain 
of this), and that it would be additional steps. For example, the GUI 
already allows 1 or more computers to be selected (up to 48, now), and the 
audit history button simply queries the audit_table based upon the same 
selection of computers for all changes made during a specified period. 
Having to create a query for computers 1-7, 11, 15, 16, 24, 31, etc, where 
start date = 'some date' and end date = now() would really be dupliating 
work that the GUI is already doing.
