Multiple Master/detail pages possible in DA?

Multiple Master/detail pages possible in DA?

Hi there, after building CRM for our company using DA I have now started looking at reporting on the data. I think what I need is a master/detail style layout only with the detail appearing under/beside the master list allowing me to drill down? I wonder also if you can build subsequant multiple master/detail pages, I have seen packages that will do this but want to stick with DA & Dreamweaver where possible.

Source Cases

Source1 30
Source2 20
Source3 50

Total 100

Clicking Source1 record would load breakdown as such:

Source Cases Advisor

Source1 10 John Smith
Source1 2 Ringo Star
Source1 8 Lord Mcenroe
Source1 10 Lady Bunter

Total 30

Clicking Ringo Star record would load breakdown as such:

Source CaseID Advisor Status

Source1 101 Ringo Star Completed
Source1 222 Ringo Star Active

Total 2

Any advice if this is possible would be appreciated.

Many thanks

This is posible to accomplish, but not through using the wizard.

you would need to create the master / detail pages manually.

the Idea behind a master detail page set is to pass a query string variable on the master page that is used by a recordset on the detail page to lookup the record to return the detail information.

for exampl, I couldhave a listing of products on my product page, and each would pass the product ID to the detail page:

Product 1 - productDetails.php?productID=1
Product 2 - productDetails.php?productID=2
Product 3 - productDetails.php?productID=3
Product 4 - productDetails.php?productID=4

Then on the detail page, the recordset filters the productID column using the productID URL variable to return the selected product.

You will need to create similar pages to show the data in your tables using query string variables to drill it down.

Hi Jason, thanks for reply that's the way I went for in the end, quite a heavy workload as each master ends up with 5 details, lots of queries & pages!

Thanks again..
