This is sorta like "don't bite off more than you can chew". Emerald
2.2 and higher comes with the ability to specify a "chunk" of the
consolidation to do, rather than the whole thing. Trying to run a
consolidation on 850,000 records will typically require more space
than the size of your tempdb (the tempdb is used to sort/order the
results before giving them to Emerald). Use 2.2 and them work in
reverse order (highest number back, not the one in parenthesis) and
it should be fine.
