By applying the principles presently employed in saving states between current tasks to long time separated tasks, and dynamically managing state storage between working and bulk stores when time permits, processing chore efficiency is improved. Saving states between screens has been routinely performed on a current basis in working stores. As the number of jobs or tasks performed increases, available working store storage becomes filled, though. Extending this function of saving dynamic storage permits intermediate results and all options and definitions associated with a query to be saved. A copy of the dynamic storage can be stored in a bulk store and be reinstated in batch to complete the query.
