If you can't access the add/update procedure and you can't access the 
table structure, then indeed the solution which I would imagine would be 
to compare the last CVS dump with the current data.

Question is if that will actually save you anything--what are you trying 
to save? Disk space? CPU cycles? Or just to eliminate redundant CVS 
data, in which case it makes sense.
