Is it? So, how much trouble would it be to add in a new column that was stamped with (Max_Seq)+1 on insert? It's schema must include the forum & thread, right? Just stamp in the post # for that forum in it, and instant searchability... and that would remain, whether any previous records were deleted...

Humm... currently then it's a Select ID, Sum{} from {table} where {forum} Order by Post_Date and a pop off to that record would get the correct K shot, right? Humm...

If I had the schema, I could get the select worked out... I rarely go seeking a particular index in systems that don't have them in them. Or that we don't add for easy retrieve of interesting records.
