Not sure why I had to retrieve your message from my spam folder, but it 
is the reason my response is slow.

Yes, there is a problem with the VKP database.   Looks like it somehow 
got partially sorted at some point, and then data was added to it 
after.   I must have done it, but not sure how.  Anyway, it does not 
seem possible to unravel it, so I am going to have to recreate it from 
the original files that were used to create it. It will be a tedious 
process, since there have been a lot of changes to the VKP since the 
original files were put into it.   The database appears to be correct 
from left to right up to but not including the film number.   All data 
from the film number to the right is out of order.    My plan is to 
compare the data to the left of the film number to the original files, 
and add the correct data from the film number to the right.
