Ah you spotted the deliberate mistake!
Of course hs00001 is in NEWEMBL not EMBL.
Fav test sequence at the mo. hs00001=aa000001 (first long acc num)

I sorted the gendata.fil file out.  I knew it had to be nose sitting.
Regarding the above comment you mean if I have for example em_est10 on 15 
I get 15 copies?

If this is true I could have fun with the users............
I especially dont like that new GENBANK division give everybody a few 
hundred copies
of anything with GSS on the end!

An addition.

I was under the impression that accession numbers were unique across both 
protein and DNA
but today completely at random I selected A25909 and pulled entries from 
embl and PIR.

I take it that acc nums are only unique within one type of sequence?
