Within the joomla customers admin whenever a customers information is loaded, where's the function to call the customers data

administrator/components/com_customers/models/user.php

$result = parent::getItem($pk);

This is actually the code that returns the information, but I have to find where this function is? I wish to amend the query as I have added some form fields, but I have to know which parent, as you will find many getItem functions in Joomla

Thanks ahead of time

Joomla 1.7 supplies a mechanism ( http://docs.joomla.org/Creating_a_profile_plugin ) for adding extra fields through user plug ins. This can be a much more robust method than editing core files - to begin with edits to core files risk being overwritten the moment you update so that as upgrading is a straightforward push button affair chances are it will be at some point.

thought it was libraries/joomla/application/component/modeladmin.php
