Just use software like ZipCity from WorksRight. Enter in the zip code and have it fill out the city and state for you. Cuts down on keying and errors. Gee is that Fort Wayne, FORT WAYNE, Ft. Wayne, Ft Wayne ... Now, yes, there is life outside the US. But my point was that users may come up with an option that you may not even think of. And, no, I don't get kickbacks from WorksRight. Just a happy customer. Rob Berendt -- "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

I guess I don't understand the question. If I have a display where the user types in the customer name, address and telephone number, but they decide they don't want to see the city field anymore, so the software lets them drop it off the display? How would the program deal with an incomplete address? Just let it flow through the system that way? I can understand re-ordering the fields on the display; I've wanted to do the same thing myself. It's a fair amount of work to have a completely user-defined panel, so have a look at UIM and user defined datastream for some ideas on how to do it. --buck _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
