This sample db demonstrates tracking of name changes spread over different 
records. Basic data is contained in a table having three fields (one primary key - 
autonumber type, and two text fields named OldName & NewName respectively).

For each OldName, there is a NewName & vice versa. As an illustration, one typical 
set of records might be -
OLDNAME                   NEWNAME
CocaCola                     CocaColaClassic
CocaColaClassic          CherryCoke
CherryCoke                  CherryCokeClassic
CherryCokeClassic       DietCoke

The sample db enables correlation of any OldName with the last NewName in the 
sequence. Similarly, it correlates any NewName with the first OldName in the 

Data entry incorporates autocomplete feature for OldName field (filling in the closest 
match from the recently filled NewNames).
