Update not functioning & MySQLi

I have a legacy site built with Design Extender & Data Bridge at

It's going to be a hassle to convert the whole site to MySQLi right now, tho I will do at some point.

My question is, I've used DW's update record behaviour, along with a record selection page to select the record, and this seems to work fine apart from the update itself - nothing happens when the update is submitted & it's got me stumped for the last day or so..

Files attached!

Can anybody see anything obvious that I've missed on the update page?

Also, can I mix MySQLi behaviours with the existing DataBridge/PowerCMS behaviours until they're updated?

I tried to use DataAssist, but it just crashes Dreamweaver!

Yes you can mix mysql with mysqli without issues.

Does the update work? It looks like you have several blank lines in your php code... those will cause issues with the redirects after insert or update. You should definitely remove them from lines 3,67,68,70,75

Thanks for that Ray!

Another pair of eyes spotted a hidden field in the update form which was basically causing the record id to be lost, during update.
