But that would still need a results page actually displaying the data. I 
thought I could check the logged in user against the username in the 
table on the results page and only display the data if they match. But I 
suppose that would still leave the possibility of guessing another results 

The configuration option in Interchange sounds perfect. But that means 
jumping from MV 3.14-6 to IC and I have quite a tight deadline.

Thanks for the prompt reply Mike.
