Thanks for your suggestions.
Bill's last attempt was nearly twice as fast as mine.

This has taught me a lot about handling lists, functions and dates with 
Mathematica, but also some of its limitations and the hoops one has to jump 
through.

In the end, I finished the job in Stata, which is built primarily around 
lists and therefore handles them more directly and efficiently (but less 
flexibly).
I had also briefly flirted with using Mathematica as a mathematical 
word-processor in place of Word & MathType.

I need to give more thought to when Mathematica is the most suitable tool 
for future jobs.

Thanks again for all your help.
Roger
