Ok kinda following you, if i move the insert to be after the form and then post to that page using the cronjob that may work?
What do you mean by " to do this in a cron job, you can rely on the post data."
The elements are getting their values from the repeated form fields.. not the recordset itsself. I have heard of a look, but don tknow how at the moment, would it work with the form or would i need to do the recordset?
thanks again for your help, love the extensions!
