I just did this for similar reasons (to add a classification field) and here is the process I followed:


1. add the field to the customers table using phpMyAdmin

2. add the supporting code in the following files:








and the supporting definitions in





As a general process what I did within each of these files was pick a similar field (e.g. customers_firstname) and search for that term. Everywhere I found it, I knew I had some code to be modified to support the new field.


If you would be interested in the new files that support a field called "customers_contract", just write me off-list and I'll send them to you.


Hope this helps...
