Hey Ray

Further to our chat yetserday, have set the db up with the 14 tables and have set up the checkboxes on the product_update page (attached). Guess I now need to 'connect' the options to the product and the '_selected' tables in the db

What do I need to do next?

Cheers

Jamie

You create the 7 recordsets and use the Repeat Selection to display the available options for each recordset with checkboxes.

You use the "Manage Relational Table" server behavior to maintain the relationship between the tables... applied once for each of the 7 recordsets and repeated checkboxes.

Aha right, I had created the recordsets using mysqli rather than mysql and used the repeat regimon instead of repeat selection. I have re-created using mysql and repest selection.

As you can see from the attached, I added the contact lens options section (starting at line 1040) intending it to be within its own <form> section - is that ok or do I need to add it within the product details <form>?

Re the manage relational table a few quesries:

1. is the 'relational table', for example, 'contact_radius_selected'?
2. is the 'main table' the 'products' one?
3. is the 'options table' the 'contact_radius'?
4. what would best practice be for the after insert?
5. main table join window, foreign key column am assuming to use the primary of the relational table?
6. should the key value be from the recordset of the form?
7. options table join window am assuming same as key column from point 5
8. last window, does the structure that I am working with require any input here?

Think thats it for the moment.

Cheers

I think it may be time for a quick premium ticket screen sharing session to get one of the seven working.
