form display

Here is another update query and display problem.

Not only doesn't the update query work, none of the data from the record displays on the form (other than the header data which is another recordset).

When I test the recordset in the wizard, it displays the selected record just fine.

I have gone over and over the fields on the form looking for typos and I can't find any.

What do you see?

Your recordset is filtered with: $_GET['ID']

The other recordsets are filtered with: $_GET['record_number']

Are you passing in both of those? Maybe the issue is that the record_number url parameter isn't being passed into the page? Maybe those should be updated to use $_GET['ID']?

Maybe I need to approach it differently. I need to use to variables to open several related pages. One variable for some another variable for others, but always coming back to the first page.

This code opens the following page and sends the ID to it.

<a href="PORC_edit_submission.php?ID=<?php echo ($rsOneSpecies->getColumnVal("ID")); ?>"><?php echo($rsOneSpecies->getColumnVal("ID")); ?></a>

I want to store that ID to a SESSION Variable named “record_ID”

So on the PORC_edit_submission.php page I put this code.

if (isset($_GET['ID'])) {
$_SESSION["record_ID"] = $_GET['ID'];
} else if (isset($_SESSION['record_ID'])) {
$_GET["ID"] = $_SESSION['record_ID'];

Is that code correct?

Also ,when that page opens (PORC_edit_submission.php), I want to store the record_number in a SESSION Variable (record_number) so I can use it for opening related pages (Some pages will open using record_ID and other record_number).

I want to get the record_number from this recordset.

$rsRecords = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsRecords",$siteguide2018,0);
$rsRecords->setQuery("SELECT * FROM PORC_records, aou_list WHERE ID = ? AND PORC_records.species_number = aou_list.SPNO");
$rsRecords->bindParam("i", "".(isset($_GET['ID'])?$_GET['ID']:"") ."", "-1"); //colname

What is the code for that?

Or am I going about this all wrong?

I think that could work. To get a value from a recordset you can use:
