Why would you bother saving all that information in a format that is 
practically impossible to search or summarize effectively (i.e. "flat" ASCII 
text), when you have all that information in tables and a fantastic 
query/reporting language available (i.e. SQL).  Forget about the STATSPACK 
reports themselves -- throw them away.  Save the data in the PERFSTAT schema 
over time so that you can reproduce whatever reports you want at will.  
Exporting to another database is a good idea, or just increase your purge 
parameters a bit so you can retrieve reports over time.  The data starts to 
become useless after a while anyway.

Hope this helps...
