If they meet the criteria explained in my previous post - yes.

I could do this - and add more complexity to the code.  However, 
I think there are more important places for me to spend my limited
time that I have to improve the program.

This is only a problem with "monster" databases.  With a little
work - I think most people can live with the limitations - but
they do need to understand what they are.
