The contents in the 'mark' column are under downstream 
control, subject only to the character set limitations. 
Probably you would use the 96 char wide 'mark' field with a 
 	[think: "a-YYYYMMDD-ClientNo-StratNo-TicketNo-more"]
value, to permit 'slicing and dicing' pieces of data

    select (fields) from CreateEvent where mark like 
'%pattern%' ...

and accept the linear search time which such a query needs to 
walk the table for matches
