Hi, all.

Sorry. It is vague. I have got lots of uncontrollable variables. All items 
are plain text - name, phone, email. I collect the data into a MySQL 
database, sort it by client into MS Access run-time files, and send it to 
them. They can bring the info up and use as a summary when that person calls 
them. But much of the information needs to be stored in corporate SQL 
databases. I have no control over corporate sites.

I developed a system in DOS about 15 years ago. You could define a screen by 
a unique set of characters in a specific location and a unique field by row 
and column. The software would then sense when it was at the correct screen 
and field, read data from the drive, and plug it into that field.

I am looking for that same functionality using Linux, Apache, and PHP (or 
other). If anyone knows of such a thing, it would be a big help.
