Thanks for that. It worked. It appears to me that while Web Assist makes the task of preparation dynamic databases pretty easy - I have found that including server validations requires a good knowledge of Dreamweaver and php - something I was hoping I didn't really need to have with Web Assist. The wizards, do a good job at preparing the php files, but they are 'basic' or 'raw'. Things like checking for duplicate entries, validating that e-mails are in e-mail format, double-op in or out (confirming e-mails) do not appear straight forward to me. Am I missing something?
