. . .Another reason this solution is less-than-ideal is that switching indexes (Soundex->Last name, and back) takes *far* too long. Some thought needs to be given in future version towards optimizing algorithms for large files - anything involving indexing, including match & merge, takes much longer than is necessary!I appreciate the computer's processor speed and RAM, along with the size of the Family File, would have a direct impact on the time for those operations, but I'll offer the following times for my Ti PowerBook

Of the variables affecting speed, I suspect the most important are size of file and speed of disc.My disk is a 60GB 4200-rpm Ultra ATA/66 hard drive and my Family File is 10.8 MB in size
