Multiple Insert Transactions with Relational Table

Hi there,
I am trying to combine three separate insert transactions onto a single page, which perhaps may not be possible. Any suggestions on how to approach this would be appreciated.

Essentially, there are two forms on the page:

First form is has the information for the "main" table, stores two fields right now - a type and a date.
The second form is a repeat region form, to allow for multiple entries to be inserted, then linked to the first forms entry via the relational table.

What I'm trying to have it do is when the page is submitted, insert the first form's data, then submit the multiple records to their table, and then add entries to the relational table with the IDs from the first two submission transactions.

Eventually, I'd also like to see what the possibility is to have the repeat region (for the multiple records position) be updated via AJAX, if that's doable. So if the user wishes to add another line/entry, they don't have to refresh the page and loose all their content they have made thus far.

Thanks much!

Eric

instead of using 2 forms, use 1 form with the fields for the main table, then the fields in the repeat region.

as for the inclusion of ajax, you would need to hand code that, we could help you implement this in a premiere support appointment:

Thanks for your reply. I adjusted the page to have one form with everything within it, and went ahead and tried that with no luck - it inserted the first of the repeated form set only, and nothing was inserted into the relational table. Also, neither of the form fields from the main form are posting data to the database either. An empty record is inserted.

Updated copy of the page attached.

you have duplicate form element names.

for the initial insert, you have an element named "name" date, and for the repeating form, you also use an element named "name", you need to use unique form element names.

on an insert, you wont use the manage relational table behavior, you only need the multiple insert behavior. so you should have the initial insert, then 2 multiple inserts.

before adding the multiple inserts, add a repeat region around the first group of repeating form elements and another repeat region around the second group of repeating form elements.
