Hi, Brian,

You know I like ck-ledger, but the inability to still not use the phpgw
addressbook table directly causes me concern.  I know that any parallel
contact storage system that relies on a sync mechanism is bound to encounter
occasional problems.

Perhaps it is due to my misunderstanding of how the "systemwide unique id"

Systemwide unique id means unique across all transactions. Say, a newly inserted customer record gets id 123, the next inserted invoice gets id 124, the next timesheet gets id 125, so on and so forth. As far as I can tell, addressbook only maintains id uniqueness within individual type of transaction, ie no organisation record could have duplicate id, but a person
record can have the same id as an organization record.

I know that the existing addressbook has a hook to allow other apps to prevent
deletion of addressbook contacts and I know that the addressbook system does
use a unique id for each of it's entries .. so I don't nderstand the problem

Could you explain it more please?

Secondly, the version that I am currently running does not have "phpgw_"
preceding the table names, does the current version?

One of the enhancement with CK-ERP is to use standardised table prefix. The default prefix is "ck_". But the system implementer could change it to whatever he/she prefers. But since it is a system crashing modification if made post implementation, the prefix is embedded in the script,, and script modification is required to effect the change.
