DataAssist only delete most recent item


I am creating a page for users to create assignment briefs. In the first instance users enter a name and assign a lecturer etc and then 'save' the information to the database. On the second page (the enclosed page), the information already entered by the user is displayed and then users can attach specific units to the assignment. These units are stored in a db table called 'panelnames' and the assignment briefs are stored in a db table called 'assignments'. These two tables are then "linked" together by a db table called 'assignments_panels'.

When I display these results in a table they work fine but I am not sure if I am doing it right since it is only when I come to delete a record using the Delete Multiple Records option that only the most recent item in the database is deleted. I have enclosed my page for you to look at.

P.S. My one thought is that I am doing something wrong when I pull the linking tables from the db. It is my understanding of linking two tables that this does not physically happen in mySQL. Instead, when adding records I simply include the integer values of the other two tables into the linking table. I should then display these values in a new recordset by using the following for the enclosed page:
FROM assignments_panels, panelnames
WHERE assignments_panels.panelnames_foreign_key = panelnames.ID AND assignments_panels.assignment_foreign_key = paramID
ORDER BY assignments_panels.APID ASC

paramID is $_GET['AID']

I think that the delete might not be working rite because of out of order code. There is currently a bug in DataAssist that makes it so the loops for the multi delete, update, and insert server behaviors can sometimes be outside of a repeat region when they should be inside of it.

I have moved the repeat region code to be outside of the repeat selection code to see if this helps you overcome this issue. Please use the attached updated file in a test to determine if you are getting a better result. Make sure that you backup the current page first though.

Oh yes!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much!

Could you describe to me which line of code you moved since I have had the same problem on another page.

Also, when do you think the bug issue might be resolved?

Thank you so much again, I thought it was me :-)
