Hi Alan, thank you for your answer.
We'll definitely use a PostgreSQL DB for those entries, but I need to
put them into a file for some months.
There will be about 1k entries with less than 10 rows per entry, so
there should be no problem since you've
tested it with much more entries.

Best regards,
