Default Gotta love synch'ing databases

250 orders in one database, 260 in the other, and I had to figure out why they were different.

Of course, the only access I have is a straight text file, instead of the real database. And one of the files has 3 entries per order. Nothing sortable or readily searchable....

Fun, fun, fun, fun, freakin' fun....

My brain hurts now......
