Thanks for your comment.The slow loading of the page is because of the sheer volume of database requests that have to be executed.There are 2 ways that this page could be speeded up. Either by altering it so that it doesn't load up all at once, as you suggest. Or, the page could be cached, held in the memory of the server, then the page would load without referring to the database each time. Either will require me to do some experimentation. This job is probably number one on the 'to do' list.
