Almost got it

Great instructions Jason. Everything went exactly as you described and appeared to be correct. However, after completing all the steps I get the following error trying to load the update page:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/beta/00_Aveo/sitecontrol/tbProducts_Update.php on line 269

Line 269 is:
$WA_joinLoopedField = "<?php echo $row_rsMaterialoptions['OptionID']; ?>";

Which is right in the midst of the Relational Table stuff here:

// WA DataAssist Manage Relational Table 1
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") // Trigger
$WA_arrayOrFieldList = 1;
$WA_joinLoopedField = "<?php echo $row_rsMaterialoptions['OptionID']; ?>";
$WA_loopedField = "WADA_RepeatID_OptionID";
$WA_connection = $adventcms;
$WA_table = "productoptions";
$WA_redirectURL = "";
$WA_redirectURL = $WA_redirectURL?rel2abs($WA_redirectURL,dirname(__FILE__)):"";
$WA_keepQueryString = false;
$WA_masterKeyField = "ProductID";
$WA_masterKeyType = "none,none,NULL";
$WA_masterKeyValue = "".$_GET['id'] ."";
$WA_masterKeyComp = "=";
$WA_joinedKeyField = "OptionID";
$WA_joinedKeyType = "none,none,NULL";
$WA_joinedKeyComp = "=";
$WA_fieldNamesStr = "ProductID|OptionID";
$WA_columnTypesStr = "none,none,NULL|none,none,NULL";
$WA_appliedString = "";
$WA_appliedList = array();
$WA_valuesList = array();
$WA_connectionDB = $database_adventcms;
mysql_select_db($WA_connectionDB, $WA_connection);
if ($WA_arrayOrFieldList == 0) {
$WA_loopedValues = $_POST[$WA_joinLoopedField];
for ($v=0; $v<sizeof($WA_loopedValues); $v++) {
$WA_fieldValues = "^MASTERID^" . "|" . "^JOINID^";
$WA_valuesList[] = array($WA_loopedValues[$v], $WA_fieldValues);
$WA_appliedString .= "^" . $WA_loopedValues[$v] . "^";
$WA_appliedList[] = $WA_loopedValues[$v];
else if ($WA_arrayOrFieldList == 1) {
$WA_mrtLoopCounter = 0;
while (WA_AB_checkLoopedFieldsExist(array($WA_loopedField), $WA_mrtLoopCounter)) {
if (WA_AB_checkLoopedFieldsNotBlank(array($WA_joinLoopedField), $WA_mrtLoopCounter) && WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue($WA_loopedField, $WA_mrtLoopCounter) == WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue($WA_joinLoopedField, $WA_mrtLoopCounter)) {
$WA_fieldValues = "^MASTERID^" . "|" . "^JOINID^";
$WA_valuesList[] = array(WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue($WA_loopedField, $WA_mrtLoopCounter), $WA_fieldValues);
$WA_appliedString .= "^" . WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue($WA_loopedField, $WA_mrtLoopCounter) . "^";
$WA_appliedList[] = WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue($WA_loopedField, $WA_mrtLoopCounter);
WA_AB_doManageRelationalTable($WA_valuesList, $WA_appliedString, $WA_appliedList, $WA_connection, $WA_table, $WA_masterKeyField, $WA_masterKeyType, $WA_masterKeyValue, $WA_masterKeyComp, $WA_joinedKeyField, $WA_joinedKeyType, $WA_joinedKeyComp, $WA_fieldNamesStr, $WA_columnTypesStr);
if ($WA_redirectURL != "") {
if ($WA_keepQueryString && $WA_redirectURL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "" && sizeof($_POST) > 0) {
$WA_redirectURL .= ((strpos($WA_redirectURL, '?') === false)?"?":"&").$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"];
header("Location: ".$WA_redirectURL);
