Steve, I forgot to thank you as well. My post was directed to you too (along with the rest of the forum). I’m on my way to check out the Scrivener forum now…

Oh and Jim, I take your point about using a single DT database with a select number of file but without indexing (at least for beginners). However part of my challenge is setting up the darn thing and locating the relevant files on my computer (and eventually an older computer that I haven’t used for while). I purchased the DevonSphere Express which searches the entire computer. However you can only select one file at a time to move! I complained to Devon and hopeful they’ll improve it to allow multiple file section (or include it in DT but I suppose that’s less likely). That way I can start building a well defined DT database.
