to be quite specific
i have made several hundred 'random' reads into our new database to check 
various functions - that record transfer does occur between two programs, and 
that some mysterous windows function allows them to communicate.
so, should we have an entry that i have been looking at every pre-booked 
patient's entry for two weeks and checking the transfer of medication lists?
i see reasons for and against.
Wishing without work is like fishing without bait.
