It is late. I am tired. I have been looking at this stuff since this
morning.  If possible, would you take a quick look at this short program and
see if you can  take a guess why it only saves the first record.  The other
two are completely ignored.  All of the records are written to memory, but
only the first comes back when I restart the program. Of course, it is
probably something obvious.  Thanks. Tom
