Direction on table join for current options selected?

Direction on table join for current options selected?

I've got the dataassist insert and update pages working to mark options via a series of checkboxes. The only piece of the puzzle I'm missing is to get the update page to automatically mark the proper checkboxes based upon options that were selected previously. I believe I need to do a query with a table join, and then set the "Check If" item to the results of that query, but my head keeps spinning trying to develop the query. Can someone provide direction on how the query should be written?

Here's the pertinent tables/columns:

tbProducts
- id

optiongroups
- OptionGroupID
- OptionGroupName

options
- OptionID
- OptionGroupID
- OptionName

Update page is attached.

you should be a linking table to assign the options to a product:

productoptions:
productoptionID - primary key
productoptionProductID - relates to tbProducts.id
productoptionsOptionId - relates to options.OptionID

and using the manage relational table behavior to set the options that belong to a product.

see the manage relational table tutorial here:

My apologies. I left that table out of the above list, but it does exist and is in use.

productoptions:
ProductOptionID
ProductID
OptionID
OptionGroupID
OptionPriceIncrement

It's been quite some time since I originally developed this page, but I believe I followed a similar tutorial when created and I've combed down through the tutorial you linked and I believe my page is in sync with what has been instructed. Everything works great except for the checkboxes for the options not being checked as they should in the update page. I was thinking I needed another recordset on the update page to pull that existing data, but maybe I'm wrong.

Can you tell me what specific part of the MRT tutorial sets the checked/unchecked status? In the "Step 4: Make the checkbox dynamic" instructions, I see plainly how it writes changes to the DB, but I don't see where it sets the checked/unchecked status on the initial page load.

BTW, here is the specific code pertaining to the repeating checkboxes on the update page in case that helps:

<?php do { ?>
<?php
// RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Loop
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining = $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations;
while($RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining--){
if($RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 || $row_rsMaterialoptions){
?>
<input type="hidden" name="WADA_RepeatID_OptionID_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1; ?>" id="WADA_RepeatID_OptionID_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1; ?>" value="<?php echo $row_rsMaterialoptions["OptionID"]; ?>" />
<input <?php if (!(strcmp($row_rsMaterialoptions['OptionID'],1))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> <?php if (!(strcmp($row_rsMaterialoptions['OptionID'],WA_AB_returnPreSelectValue($WA_PreSelect_RelationalTable_1, $row_rsMaterialoptions['OptionID'])))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> class="checkbox" name="checkbox_<?php echo $RepeatSelectionCounter_1; ?>" type="checkbox" value="<?php echo $row_rsMaterialoptions['OptionID']; ?>" />
<?php echo $row_rsMaterialoptions['OptionName']; ?><br />
<?php
} // RepeatSelectionCounter_1 Begin Alternate Content
else{
?>
No records match your request.
<?php } // RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Alternate Content
if(!$RepeatSelectionCounterBasedLooping_1 && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining != 0){
if(!$row_rsMaterialoptions && $RepeatSelectionCounter_1_Iterations == -1){$RepeatSelectionCounter_1_IterationsRemaining = 0;}
$row_rsMaterialoptions = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsMaterialoptions);
}
$RepeatSelectionCounter_1++;
} // RepeatSelectionCounter_1 End Loop
?>
<?php } while ($row_rsMaterialoptions = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsMaterialoptions)); ?>

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

you had a couple problems on the update page preventing it from working:

1) The Update Record server behavior was set to redirect to the results page, this redirect happened before the manage relational table behavior could be triggered.

2) in the forms action you had the id URL variable using the id column, however the id being passed in was the partno column.

Shoot Jason. I think I just goofed up. Did you make changes to that page from your end? I assumed I needed to make those changes and overwrote what was there.
