Buck,

As others have stated, and I've seen it too, there are numerous canned
packages out there which allow you to control which fields to put on the
screen.

It's like a religion thing.  Once I get you to have faith that it can be
done doing it is a separate issue.  And, would it even be ethical for
someone to say how Vendor A does it, or is that a violation of a trade
secret?

Oh, I agree completely, and that's what makes user-defined _presentation_
so
difficult.  Sure you can have the end user re-arrange the display, but
what
about the underlying business logic?  In most applications, the two are
inseparable.
