Hi Hans,

did You ever look at :


"Flatten[list] flattens out nested lists. Flatten[list, n] flattens to level \
n. Flatten[list, n, h] flattens subexpressions with head h."


"FlattenAt[list, n] flattens out a sublist that appears as the nth element of \
list. If n is negative, the position is counted from the end. FlattenAt[expr, \
{i, j, ... }] flattens out the part of expr at position {i, j, ... }. \
FlattenAt[expr, {{i1, j1, ... }, {i2, j2, ... }, ... }] flattens out parts of \
expr at several positions."

I don't know the structure  of Your list and the structure You want but
one of the functions may help
