Description of the issue

New to FMK.
I am hoping for help on setting up a active ROLODEX.
1st "Do i need to create a script for each 26 letters of the alphabet?" (to call the business locations, to populate the contact info (location name, address, city, st, ph)

2nd "How do I create a listing of persons from the rolodex with use of the first 2 or 3 letters of their name?

Finally,if i chose a letter from the rolodex (last name starts with jon (jones). How would I tell FMk to advise me that a name or set of names exist (which would I like) to add to the contact's notes.
If any of the (3) needs are too much. Please pick any one. A little help would be appreciated.
Thanks
gil
