What I'm trying to do is simulate a "stock market"
where a user places an order for a certain number of
shares.  For example, if a user places an order to to
buy 50 then I need to go thru and search to see if
there is any combination of sell orders that adds to 50
to complete the order.  So I only need to find one
combination of records that meets this criteria and
then I could change the status of those records.
