  Ah... that's whay you meant.  It wasn't clear from your earlier message.

  Yes, that's the way it works.  The detail file is a flat-text file.
It isn't a database.

  The simplest way to deal with this is to have small detail files.
Create them per minute, or per hour.

  Multi-gigabyte detail files aren't recommended.
