The users are not employees. They will be coming in through web browsers on
unknown platforms. The .db will in the main be read by the majority of
users. However a smaller number will be granted write access (to update
their own company details) using whatever privs are appropriate.

Thanks for the suggestions Ryan.

Seasons Greetings to one and all,
