When I apply a MySQLi Manage Relational Table behavior, it is somehow applying an old function

Thanks Ray, that worked great as well.

I have the behaviors in this order.

Update (for all the other details being updated for this product).
Delete (binds $_GET[‘ProductID’] to the Parent_ProductID column in the relational table).
Insert (binds the multi-select array post to the Parent_DepartmentID in the relational table).

This is what I did for the preselect. Please let me know if there is a better way.

I created another recordset that queries the current applied department categories from the relational table. Then I nested it within the while loop of the recordset that populates the multi-select so that I could use it to compare the category ids, selecting all that are already applied.

<select name="u_DepartmentCategory[]" multiple="multiple" id="u_DepartmentCategory" required>

  <option disabled value>Select Category</option>
while(!$rsDepartmentCategories->atEnd()) { //dyn select
= new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsPreselectCategories",$dbPRODUCTSi,0);
$rsPreselectCategories->setQuery("SELECT Parent_ProductID, Parent_DepartmentCategoryID FROM relDepartment_Products WHERE Parent_DepartmentCategoryID = ? AND Parent_ProductID = ?");
$rsPreselectCategories->bindParam("i""".($rsDepartmentCategories->getColumnVal("DepartmentCategoryID"))  ."""-1"); //ParamCatID2
$rsPreselectCategories->bindParam("i""".$_GET['ProductID']  ."""-1"); //ParamProdID2
  <option value="<?php echo($rsDepartmentCategories->getColumnVal("DepartmentCategoryID")); ?>"<?php if (!(strcmp($rsDepartmentCategories->getColumnVal("DepartmentCategoryID"), ($rsPreselectCategories->getColumnVal("Parent_DepartmentCategoryID"))))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo($rsDepartmentCategories->getColumnVal("DepartmentCategoryName")); ?></option>
//dyn select

Quick question…so what is the MRT specifically used for now? I have other pages to update that use the older MRT. Are there cases where I should continue with it or simply change to this simpler method?
