Data Assist insert and delete item question

Hi Dave - Yeah, I thought it was beyond what the the scope of tech responsibility, and to underscore, thanks for going the extra mile on this for me. You have clarified it a little more for me, and at a glance, CraigR's link looks like it goes into greater detail. Many thanks to you, Craig, for the link. Your taking the time to help is really appreciated.

And now irony plays a part. Had I not bought the Suite of extensions and addons, and spent countless (I can't bear to count them), lost revenue hours trying to work through developing what I am sure is a very simple PHP based site, I most certainly would have had the budget to hire someone from the Jobs Forum. And, if I factor in my time, I would have come out far ahead to have just had someone do the entire site for me. And if you factor in the adverse effect that missing my deadlines for this job has had on my reputation... well, I prefer not to think about it. Live and learn. And, just so it is clear, I am not blaming anyone but myself. I should have looked more deeply through the forums, and the all too similar reviews prior to making my purchases. End of venting.

Just to be perfectly clear, I am sincerely grateful for all your help. I would have been far more lost than I presently am without it. At least now, with your help, I can anticipate the end of the project.

One thing about the logic of the original question: If you are building a site for a client with a rotating stock of the same items, it would just seem logical that you would have the capability to remove an item from the store without destroying that information in their database, thereby requiring them to look up and enter, once again, the information from an outside source.

Your solution with the 'Published, not Published' or 'Private, not Private' option seems like it would be both a simple and logical one for WebAssist to incorporate into the DataAssist Wizard. My lack of programming knowledge doesn't prevent me from understanding the benefit that would provide the users of your product and in so doing, increasing the appeal of the WebAssist extensions.

I am sure there is a wishlist for items like this, however, at the moment, I don't have the time to look for it. Maybe when this seemingly endless job is over, I'll look for it (hmm. Sounds like more frustration fighting through) and enter it there.

So, to sum up, your efforts to help me are appreciated at a level that I cannot presently convey, so all I can say is thank you for all your help.

I'll let you know if the information at the link that Craig provided will help resolve the problem for me.
