Thanks for posting the code, it is helpful. Next time you would like to post with the code of the page it may be better to attach it in a zip archive, this way we can see the line numbers and stuff like that.

In the code you posted I have added some debug statements to the update server behavior. I added a variable that will hold the update sql, then it will print out all of the update statements so we can take a look at them.

Please make a backup of this page and test it with the updated code and let us know what the result is.

Updated Multiple update server behavior:


// WA DataAssist Multiple Updates
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST"// Trigger
$the_updates "";
if (!
session_id()) session_start();
$WA_loopedIDField = array("WADA_RepeatID_ItemID");
$WA_connection $mayther;
$WA_table "items";
$WA_redirectURL "admin-change-the-order.php";
$WA_keepQueryString false;
$WA_indexField "ItemID";
$WA_fieldNamesStr "ItemOrder";
$WA_columnTypesStr "none,none,NULL";
$WA_fieldNames explode("|"$WA_fieldNamesStr);

$MM_editCmd mysql_query($WA_Sql$WA_connection) or die(mysql_error());
if (
$WA_redirectURL != "") {
if (
$WA_keepQueryString && $WA_redirectURL != "" && isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] !== "" && sizeof($_POST) > 0) {
