this file is over 9MB. 91PART data in another spreadsheet — all other lookup tables in master spreadsheet. if i'd added this bizness to the master spreadsheet it would've kicked file size over 10MB. things are already way too slow on this poor Win98 system. unfortunately, reading so much data in from another file into one cell terminated strings. 91PARTS data got terminated if the string was too long because i was concatenating TARO & 91PARTS. fixed: added new column & separated strings.
