Update and delete forms not working

Hi, Just like to say thanks for the excellent support on these forums. Im really new to php and database driven websites and i am coming across a number of problems however managing to sort most of them quite quickly due to your help.

Which brings me to my next problem.... I have created a number of pages to add, update and delete data from tables however recently no matter what i do (and i have tried everything including the dreamweaver wizards) i can only make the add form work.

I have got a "manage" page which displays all the records with an "edit" and "delete" button on each line. When i click the edit or delete it takes me to the "update" or "delete" page and the URL shows the correct record number i.e. _id=6 but it does not populate the update fields with the record data and the delete page does not delete the record or take me back to the "manage" page. The "manage" page is clearly sending the correct record but for some reason the other pages do not seem to be able to use it???
