you will need to edit the recordset for the subcategories list to use a join query, something like:

SELECT subcategories.*
FROM subcategories
INNER JOIN categories
ON subcategories.categoryID = categories.categoryID
WHERE categories.active=1

the exact SQL for your database will be a bit different depending on table and column names. the idea is to create a recordset that returns subcategories based on the active status in the categories table.

see the following page for more details on join queries:
sql_join.asp


for the issue with editing the menu: no there is not a way to prevent the edits to the recordsets from being overwritten.
