Mike,

This type of interface is most definitely possible to do in RR/MC. But, you
would need to create a script to generate the different 'move' commands
based on where you clicked. I'd probably create an array which described the
relationships between the data, then render the fields on the fly. Get it
working without the animation first (click on a field and it redraws the
other fields) then add the 'move to' animation capability.
