Hi Jason Byrnes,

I have another issue that I could not figure out. I need to clarify that I am very new to phpmyadmin, mysql, databases and dreamweaver.

Currently, I have one table (book) which contains these attributes (ISBN(primary key), title, author, publisher, price etc) in phpmyadmin

I have the other table (users) which contains these attributes (username (primary key), password, name, DOB etc) in phpmyadmin too.

Let me explain the series of steps for my webpages first. An user logs in on the log in page successfully, and he will be directed to the main page, then he will type or select his search terms, then the results page will display the relevant results in the master list, then he will select the specific result to go to the detailed page containing more information.

What I want now is to create a reservation page. If the user likes the specific book, he can click reserve it, and will be directed to the reservation page.

I intend to have these search textfields: Username, Title, Price, and Number of books.

How can I let the username textfield to be automatically filled with the username as the user has logged in at the login page initially.? Also, how can I let the title and price textfield to be automatically filled with the relevant title and price, as the user has clicked reserve it at the specific detailed page? I intend that the user just key in number of orders and press submit button. My 3rd database (reservation) will capture the info of username, title, price, and number of orders. Do i use insert record or update record?

Do i create a relational table in phpmyadmin by linking it with the keys from tables (book and users)? Will this be a many to many relationship?
