HI Jill,

Totally understand about the hassle of multiple user profiles / logins.  I 
agree that it would be better if the saved report definitions could be stored 
in the data file in some way.

But if you have a long list of saved/customised reports, then prefixing each 
with a P or B for personal or business should at least allow them to be 
grouped together in the list (ie all the B-Foo* before all the P-Foo*) which, 
IMHO, isn't *too* bad for usability?
