Thanks Jeff. I am interfacing with iCal by creating .ics files that  
can be imported into iCal, but I use a lot of data fields that aren't  
available in iCal so don;t think I could use it as my main data  
storage vehicle.  I am looking at using the Mac address book though  
since it seems to fit my needs pretty nicely, just have to learn  
Applescript to develop some sort of interface I guess.
