Re: My PAF file is too large and unwieldy now?

I like the fact that all my files are in one file which is a littler over 90,400 individuals. I had assumed that when I hit the 100,000 mark that PAF would crash on me because there would not be a field above 100,000. You claim that you have 200,000 records and file just now getting unwieldy.

I am almost in a panic now thinking that I will soon be out of business with PAF as I hit 99,999 individuals and have to split my file into at least two segments. If the 200.000 figure is accurate I don't need to be concerned. Can anyone confirm this?

I know a little bit about programing and in years past you didn't waste a field unnecessarily. Maybe things have changed over time.
