the issue is in the way that Dreamweaver interprates the parameter's created by DataAssist.

When the DataAssist wizard creates a parameter, it uses the database column name to ensure that the parameter name will always be unique.

When the code for the parameter is written by Dreamweaver, it concatinates the parameter name and the recordset name seperated by an underscore:

for example the parameter name for the client_id column would be created as


Heres where the issue comes in:

when Dreamweaver inspects the parameter variable code, it interprates everything after the first underscore as the recordset name. so it sees:

Paramter name: Paramclient
Recordset name: id_WADAclients

instead of as
Paramter name: Paramclient_id
Recordset name: WADAclients

you could recreate the problem outsoide of dataassist by creating a recordset that used a parameter with an underscore in the name.

the workaround would be to edit the code to remove the underscore form the perameters name. For example, change:

$Paramclient_id_WADAclients = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['client_id'])) {
$Paramclient_id_WADAclients = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_GET['client_id'] : addslashes($_GET['client_id']);


$Paramclientid_WADAclients = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['client_id'])) {
$Paramclientid_WADAclients = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_GET['client_id'] : addslashes($_GET['client_id']);
