Thank You Jason,
However I am having problems that appear to be due to using the form element name.
In fact if I add (<?php echo $_POST["State"]; ?>) the page displays ()
Here is the code in the form to enter the state...
<td><input type="text" class="WAATKTextField" name="State" id="State" value="<?php echo(str_replace('"', '"', $row_WAATKmemberaccounts['State'])); ?>" size="32" /></td></tr>
I have tried this with both the profile page from WASA and the update page from WADA. And with other form element names, placing the echo statement within and outside the form tags. And with single or double quotes around the form element name in the echo statement.
