Conditional layout based on choice in field

Hi...I would like the layout to change based upon an entry chosen from a drop-down menu in one of the fields.  For example:  I have a Contact layout with two columns and three tabs.  If the user chooses "Company A" at the top of the first column when they are entering a new contact, then the fields in the second column change to adapt to the information pertinent to the information needed for that company.  Also, for that Company I may need additional tabs to appear.

 

I am using Act! 2006, version 8.  Is there a way to make the layout change based on conditional information in a field?

Supplemental question:

 

In order to use this addon, does it have to be uploaded onto my company's server, or can I run it from my personal hard drive at work?  (Should I ask the Exponeciel people this?)  Thanks.

Hello BBeck,

This would be a question for Exponenciel, but they may be watching the Act! Community.  Also, someone else in the Community may know the answer so it doesn't hurt to post it here.
