This is a free Address Book PHP script with a MySQL database.
This script allows users to search, view, add, edit, and delete address
entries from a web browser. Each user can have a different login username.
It's very easy to add/remove fields to/from the script.
In fact, I've seen others using this script to store
something totally different from addresses.
You can customize Address Book Script online and/or manually.

Customization Quick Guide
Important Note: The guide assumes that the table name in the script is "Address"
Yes, it always used to be that way. ( for 4 years! )
But the thing has changed. Address Book Builder v1.1 or later allows users
to choose any name for the table,
so the table name is no longer always "address."
Before you start reading the guide, it's good idea to make sure what table name
is used in your script. To do so, use phpMyAdmin to check the table names.
There should be two tables. one is "staff", which stores the staffs data.
And the other one holds your data.
Lastly, change the data type of the field in the MySQL database
from VARCHAR to DATETIME.

Address Book Script : Editing options in a dropdown listbox
To edit the options of a dropdown list box generated by Address Book Builder, open web/config/config.selection.inc.php in a text editor. In the following example, three options are defined for the "State" dropdown list box.
define( 'SEL_STATE', "
The format of options are a list of key-value pairs. The keys are stored in the database and the values are shown in the dropdown list box. You may freely add new key-value pairs to the list. Please make sure that all keys are unique and that the length of the key is equal to or less than the length of the field in the database.
Address Book Script : Installing multiple copies in the same database
If you try to install multiple copies of Address Book Script, table name collisions occur. In order to avoid it, you can change the table names before running the installation script. Change the table names in web/install/sql/sql.txt, which will be used to create tables in the database by the installation script. Also, you need to change the table names in web/codelib/cfg/config.table_name.inc.php.

Address Book Script : changing the default sorting order
To change the default sorting order, open web/staff/app/df.fieldlist.inc.php in a text editor and edit XA_INIT_ORDER_BY
Do you need to make the size of a field larger/smaller?
The following guide will show you an example for changing the size of a field.
In this guide, you change the size of the email
field from 100 chars to 200 chars.
Use phpMyAdmin to change the size of "email" field of the table,
tbl_address to 200 chars.
If you prefer to use a sql statement, use the following command:
Do you need another field similar to an exsiting field in the script?
If so, the following step-by-step guide will help you. In this guide,
you will add a copy of the email field to the script.
Let's call it "email2."
Use phpMyAdmin to create a new field named "email2" in the table,
tbl_address. The attributes of the
email2 field should be exactly the same as the
email field except the name.
If you prefer to use a sql statement to create the
email2 field, use the following statement:
ALTER TABLE `tbl_address` ADD `email2` VARCHAR( 100 ) NULL AFTER `email`;
Find the following code in web/codelib/asc/df.fl.address.inc.php.
Description: This is a bug introduced in Address Book Builder v1.2. In some builds, some of data columns of the search result table get cut off. ( Thank you for reporting, Mikitty! )
