Edit Multiple Updates behaviour to only update one field

Edit Multiple Updates behaviour to only update one field

I have a page with a Multiple Updates behavior applied which is updating two fields - one a checkbox, and one a text field.

I now need it to only update the text field.

I can't see the behavior listed in the Server behaviours panel to edit, and have looked at editing the code directly.

In the attached file, the fields are:

AY_africa_winner (checkbox, no longer needed)
AY_africa_rank (text field, still needed)

I've done this sort of thing before without problems, but keep going wrong here.

The file is as it was now, but I tried taking out the reference to AY_africa_winner on line 139.

And changing lines 140, 147, 148 and 152.

I assume I'm going wrong with the none, none NULL parts.

Presumably this is a straightforward enough edit, and I don't need to redo the whole thing?

Thanks.

change line 138 - 140:

$WA_fieldNamesStr = "AY_africa_winner|AY_africa_rank";
$WA_columnTypesStr = "',none,''|none,none,NULL";



$WA_fieldNamesStr = "AY_africa_rank";
$WA_columnTypesStr = "none,none,NULL";



and line 147:

$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue("AY_africa_winner", $WA_multipleUpdateCounter)    
."" . $WA_AB_Split . "".WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue("AY_africa_rank", $WA_multipleUpdateCounter)
."";



to:

$WA_fieldValuesStr = "".WA_AB_getLoopedFieldValue("AY_africa_rank", $WA_multipleUpdateCounter) ."";

Thanks Jason - that's pretty much what I was trying, but isn't working. Its fine with the original with the two fields, but with that it doesn't update the AY_africa_rank field.

I have attached an updated version, with more info below.

Probably easiest to recreate the page then

Thanks Jason - I spotted what was breaking it. I had commented out the input field for the field I didn't need to update, and had also commented out the hidden field for the tables ID column.

Uncommenting that fixed it.
