Manage Relational Table - Working Tutorial?


Just wondering if there is a working tutorial for the Manage Relational Table (MRT) Server Behaviour? I have done some reading from the site and can't quite get it working. None of my checked items get inserted into the binding table.

I have three tables (Contracts, Venues, Link_CV.)

Contracts - contains contract information
Venues - contains venue information
Link CV - has unique ID and two fields "venue_ID" and "Contract_ID"

1. On insert page I have removed redirect URL from DataAssist insert behaviour.

2. I have created a looping checkbox set using a database query that retrieves all of the venues.

<?php $setRows=0?><?php do { ?>
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Loop
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations;
$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 || $row_getVenues){
          <div id="repeatBox">
              <input type="hidden" name="WADA_RepeatID_venue_id_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1?>" id="WADA_RepeatID_venue_id_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1?>" value="<?php echo $row_getVenues["venue_id"]; ?>" />
              <input <?php if (!(strcmp($row_getVenues['venue_id'],WA_AB_returnPreSelectValue($WA_PreSelect_RelationalTable_1$row_getVenues['venue_id'])))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> type="checkbox" name="venueCheck[<?php echo $row_getVenues['venue_id']; ?>]_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1?>" id="venueCheck_<?php echo $row_getVenues['venue_id']; ?>_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1?>" value="<?php echo $row_getVenues['venue_id']; ?>"/>
              <?php echo $row_getVenues['venue_short']; ?></label>
          <?php $setRows++; echo $setRows; if ($setRows == 3) { echo "<br/>"$setRows=0; }?>
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Alternate Content
No records match your request.
<?php // RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Alternate Content
if(!$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining != 0){
$row_getVenues && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations == -1){$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining 0;}
$row_getVenues mysql_fetch_assoc($getVenues);
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Loop
          <?php } while ($row_getVenues mysql_fetch_assoc($getVenues)); ?>

3. added MRT behaviour to page using:

Trigger - Button:Insert Pressed
DB connection
relational table set to link table
goto set to results page

Foreign key column - contractID from link table
data type - numeric
key value - set to created insert record id from contract table (WADAnsertRecordID)

foreign key column - linked table venue id
data type - numeric
options form field - wada repeat id venue id in repeat selection

no changes made

Something is wrong - maybe with the name or ids given to my looping checkboxes? Any help would be appreciated - and when this is working I will make a step by step guide for this as nobody else has done it yet. :)
