Hi Jeff & Steve,
Thanks for your responses.  After seven hours R/machine ran out of memory
(and thus ended).  Currently the machine has 4GB RAM.  I'm looking to
install more RAM tomorrow.

I will look into SQLLite3; thanks!

I've read that SQL would be a great program for data of this size (read-in,
manipulate), but I understand there is a hefty price tag (similar to the
cost of SAS? [licensing]).  At this time I'm looking for a low-cost
solution, if possible.  After this data event, a program like SQL would not
be needed in the future; also, with these multiple data sets to synthesize,
only a handful are of this size.

Thanks & please lend any other advice!
