Update Multiple Records

Hi I wonder if you could help me. I am trying to get a form calculator to work with your update multiple records server behaviour. The one i am using is the calculated field extension. It works fine on sample_form6.php but when i apply the the update multiple records it wont work.

Its "_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1; ?>" within the form input tag name which is the problem.

Can you help please

in a multiple update form, the form elements need to be dynamically named, you wont be able to perform calculations on the form elements since the name of the element will not be known at run time.

Hi I thought they were Jason i.e <input name="<?php echo $row_Recordset1['Price']; ?>

sample_form6.php

on that page it works fine
but when applying the update multiple record behaviour the form values are beng changed to price1_0
value1_0
quantity1_0
etc
sample_form7.php

when they should be
price1
value1
value2
price2
value2
quantity2
etc

so they dont match the equations that are dynamically produced and _<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1; ?>

is making this happen

price1
value1
value2
price2
value2
quantity2  




no this is not correct.

using the multiple update behavior, the fields need to be dynamically named so that each set of element will be unique. this is why the _0, _1 etc is being added on the end.

this is as designed.
