Last Major Updates (approved and tested)
        Mar 04 2002 Fixes a small import error in Promo Only imports
	This only affects versions 2.168a-b-c-d of this software.
2.168c  Released 22 Feb 2002
	CDDB options fixed where multiple delimiters found in 
	title/artist will help fix importing:
        Example: Suzie Q-Sweet Hitchhiker-CCR 
        will translate to Title=Suzie Q-Hitchhiker and Artist = CCR
        where before it would move Hitchhiker over to Artist by error.
        Now you can remove the word "The" from song titles as you import
        from CDDB as a requested user option.
        Some various artist CD's would duplicate artist 
        within the title-Fixed bug.
	Enhancement where if the artist looks the same for each track
	then the program automatically checks the artist for all CD same box
	Improved enhancement for CD's where the Artist is the same and the
	song title contains the artist name.
        Fixed a few bugs with reversing title/artist button when adding cddb
        CD data to your database.
	CDDB title-artist delimiters re-adjusted for better splitting of 
	titles from artist listings in the CDDB database.
	Above features are generally tested but may not be 100% bug free.

       on individual machines for paid versions.

	New READ-ONLY functionality ready for TESTING.
	1. Test out the new functionality of importing CD track listings
	data using cddb database on the Internet.  Not all the data
	in cddb is stored the same way and this update should fix a lot
	of the ways people have entered the data and allow you to fix
	the data BEFORE you import it into your database.
	2. Fixed small bug in the registration screen when you entered
	a registration number with letters and not numbers.

	now can determine what delimiter you want between last and first
	name such as comma or dash or slash if you like on the setup menu
	when you are on the cddb import screen.
	5. BIG ENHANCEMENT. On the main search grid SETUP MENU at the top you
	can now specify how the database is accessed from this specific computer
	such as read-only (no changes can be made) and other options.  This is
	used where you want users to have access to the database BUT no access
	to update it from a certain computer.  
2.156	New Grid Update for the program.
	1. There is a new printing grid update.  If you get an error
	printing "Object not supported error 438 in line 310" then
	you need to upgrade to the latest version. 
	2. A minor fix was done on the registration name at the top
	of the program (Thanks David) as it would append your registration
	info each time you went back to the main search grid.
