Multiple edit does not work

Thread began 9/28/2010 8:19 pm by alan_croft399018 | Last modified 10/10/2010 4:59 am by alan_croft399018 | 2166 views | 13 replies


Thanks again Dave
We have some action, problem, it updates all fields for all teams with the inputs for team 1, have looked at the table in my c panel and all fields are the same as for team_ID 1. Is it something I have done or is it always this difficult to get a multiple update page to work? I noticed when I created the multiple insert page that some of the code went into the wrong place on the page and was able to fix that myself, maybe I just got lucky? One starts to doubt if "data assist" is a worthwhile investment. I am no expert in php, I would like to be able to write the code myself but do not have that ability. For us dreamweaver users the only option is to buy "extensions" or search the web for tutorials, I sincerely hope we can get this to work as I have built a scoring system that, while it works is cumbersome to use and will require a few of these type of pages to make it easier to use. I am using CS3 does that make a difference?
Really appreciate your assistance

The current code is:

<?php require_once('../Connections/connvbsa.php'); ?>
<?php require_once("../WA_DataAssist/WA_AppBuilder_PHP.php"); ?>
if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . doubleval($theValue) . "'" : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
