Simple to build, eh?  <smile>  Just for kicks... how long do you think it
would take you to build this in RPG?  At minimum, you'll need the contact
file itself, a department file, a location file, a user ID file, a security
file, and a user settings file.  Since this would be a prototype for
multiple applications, I'd expect you'd also want an application definition
file that defines the default columns.  In addition, you may need a notes
file for the more free-form fields.

And I don't see any validation rules, either.

I'm not saying this is a bad example, but it's far from simple.  Simple is
something like a currency code maintenance panel: USD=U.S. Dollars,
BFR=Belgian Francs.  This contact maintenance panel is something someone
might actually pay for.  I'll see what I can do in my Copious Free Time, but
you're really asking for quite a bit.
