Thanks for the info.
Here's an idea that's a bit out of our league:
When Emerald does a batch-out, have it rename the original file (e.g.
batch-out.txt) to batch-out.200002021648.txt or something (I just used the
date/time as an example that wouldn't easily be messed up in any way), then
batch-out the new (batch-out.txt) file. That way, there's a copy of the
previous one and the new one doesn't include any old transactions. Of
course this procedure might be a bit easier said than done...
