Dear Starhawk
 
I'm posting here so I can attached the ZIP containing the 250+ item Grocery.ODB
 
Futher to your message..
Thank you, Sir Sourcerer...!  
What I meant with two-key 'shortcuts' was more like entering LT and having it know I mean LETTUCE and printing that on the relevant line.
 
The attached is a 'possible' database file you could use to create your application, all you need to do is add your own 'LT' = LETTUCE code for each item.
 
Sincerely and in good faith
Martin

Thank you! Now I just need to make it interactive (so that it selects certain entries from the database, orders them, and compiles them into a smaller list) and add printing ability... that should be interesting...

This all looks a bit familiar to me!
 
Look at; http://forum.psion2.org/YaBB.pl?board=UserPost;action=display;num=117784 8529
 
There are a couple of things about 'BC Data' that you might find useful.
 
The first is that in order to produce the Japanese katakana, you need to access those characters using - up to three characters...
 
The second thing is that, despite the bilingual and boot-pack nature of it, it is just a simple selling database - an excellent jumping-off point.
 
These were some of my experiments some decades ago.  We play a relay race...

Ooh, this is promising! THANK YOU! I'm snowed in at the moment (although, thankfully, the power has not yet gone out... but I'm waiting, as the snow is still falling...) but I'll take a proper look once the weather clears and I'm out of 'hunker down' mode...
