PHP Phone Directory

Hello everyone. The company I work for has recently run into a bit of a problem managing there phone directory. As it currently stands, we have on html file that we edit when new employees are added and deleted when employees leave. As you can imagine this has become a bit cumbersome.

A few months ago I had created a simple PHP/MySQL phone directory for my personal use.(here) I created the add employee page and the view current employees page. This is fine for me but my company would need a little more functionality. I would like to create a query page so that people could search by Department or Last Name to find a phone number. I would also like to have the abiltity to easily edit existing entries because people change desks often so there information stays the same but there phone numbers change. Of course I know how to go into MySQL and edit the entries myself but we would like this database to be maintained by someone who can easily edit existing entries through a web page.

Anybody know of an existing phone directory in PHP that I could edit or a tutorial on writing querys and editing pages in PHP? Thanks in advance.

Have you looked at ? Try searching for, say, ``phonebook''. Phonebook.php3 looks quite nice.

Good luck,
