Store and Keep Session when record set is updated

I have a page were I am passing a form variable and storing as session variable when directed to new page. I have a recordset that uses a GET function to update table. When the recordset is updated on the same page i loose my session.

How do i keep my session when updating a recordset and staying on the same page. The recordset has nothing to do with session.

Jason, always thanks for you prompt response greatly appreciated. I have a form that passes a variable to page i attached. The issue is on this page i have a recorded that updates when client picks a certain option.

Two issues

1. the form on step-2-session.php passing the value doesn't update the Session $_SESSION['totalguestcount'] on the menu-items.php page

2. $_SESSION['totalguestcount'] on menu-items.php gets lost when recordset is updated based on $_GET function from links

I attached both pages.

step-2-session - menu-times.php

1) the form element on the step 2 session page that passes the guest count is named fieldset_group_Select_One:
<select class="formMenufield_Medium" name="fieldset_group_Select_One" id="fieldset_group_Select_One" rel="<?php echo((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("testguests","fieldset_group_Select_One"):"")); ?>" tabindex="1" title="Please enter a value">

2) the form on that page is set to use the post method:
<form class="NewFromBlank_Default" id="Default_NewFromBlank_Default" name="Default_NewFromBlank_Default" method="post" action="menu-items.php">

3) on the menu items page, you have 2 pieces of code to set the guest count session:
<?php
@session_start();
if("" == "") {
$_SESSION["totalguestcount"] = "".$_GET['totalguestcount'] ."";
}
?>
<?php
session_start();

// store session data
if (isset($_SESSION['totalguestcount']))
$_SESSION['totalguestcount'] = $_POST['fieldset_group_Select_One']; // or if you have any algo.
?>

the first one should be removed since the get wont pass the selected value, it will be passed by the post.

in the second one, you should use the fieldset_group_Select_One post element as the trigger:

<?php
session_start();
// store session data
if (isset($_POST['fieldset_group_Select_One'])) {
$_SESSION['totalguestcount'] = $_POST['fieldset_group_Select_One'];
}
?>
