Forms not functioning properly

Forms not functioning properly

I am having problems with two forms, in separate websites. As far as I can tell I have followed the instructions for setting them up, however I have the following issues (code attached): Both forms rely on members logging in via Security Assist.

Form in file labelled 'airshow':
I want this to connect with my database table and prepopulate with id (i will make this hidden once I have it working) Membership #, first name, last name, email, telephone and mobile. I then want members to fill in their aircraft details and insert the form contents into the database as well as auto-email to admin. At the moment, the form prepopulates with the id number and membership number on the first row of the table, regardless of who has logged in. If I remove the bindings to the table columns, it will at least send the auto email, but not insert into the database table (of course).

Form in file labelled 'pd_log'
I want this to connect with my database table and prepopulate with id (which will also be hidden once i have it working) - so far, so good as it is connecting with the correct login details. However, I cannot get it to insert the records into either the database or an auto-email. Also, since I followed the instructions found on a forum about how to repeat the datepicker, there doesn't seem to be any way to bind the datepicker field to the database? Maybe this happens once the form works, but since I can't get it working, I can't tell.

Help please - save my sanity.

airshow) When the user logs in, their ID is stored in a session variable. Instead of lookingup the ID in the recordset, use the session variable bidning instead.

also, you have the insert record behavior set to redirect to another page, this redirect happens before the email is sent. remove the redirect from the insert, and have the redirect set in the UE behavior instead.

pd_log) instead of using the Current page submit trigger in the insert behavior, try using the button pressed trigger.

NOTE: instead of pasting the code into text files, please compress the original php files to a zip archive to attach your pages.
