The way the information is being stored, and the information being stored,
really is easier with a database. I need a historical view of everything a
user entered, along with a date stamp. SQL makes this simple. Why is a
separate DB a bad idea? It is fully functional right now, with the
exception of it being dynamic per user. Cant figure how to make use of the
*$current_user->user_login; *outside the loop in php. I am trying to use
it to create a table name that matches the current username.
