How can I update a select menu using multiple update ?

Hi there, I'm trying to do a multiple update with a select menu EXAMPLE

<select name="select" id="select">
<?php
while(!$Lang_RS->atEnd()) { //dyn select
?>
<option value="<?php echo($Lang_RS->getColumnVal("lang_id")); ?>"<?php if (!(strcmp($Lang_RS->getColumnVal("lang_id"), ($DefaultLang_RS->getColumnVal("name"))))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo($Lang_RS->getColumnVal("name")); ?></option>
<?php
$Lang_RS->moveNext();
} //dyn select
$Lang_RS->moveFirst();
?>
</select



but multiple update records look up for repeated form


like this

<?php
$wa_startindex = 0;
while(!$Lang_RS->atEnd()) {
$wa_startindex = $Lang_RS->Index;
?>


<?php
$Lang_RS->moveNext();
}
$Lang_RS->moveFirst(); //return RS to first record
unset($wa_startindex);
unset($wa_repeatcount);
?>
And select menu does not work with this selection.
So what is the way to do this ?

I can do an example page and attach it but with no results because Multiple updates records doesn't recognize the loop on select menu like THIS (


<select name="select" id="select">
<?php
while(!$Lang_RS->atEnd()) { //dyn select
?>
<option value="<?php echo($Lang_RS->getColumnVal("lang_id")); ?>"<?php if (!(strcmp($Lang_RS->getColumnVal("lang_id"), ($DefaultLang_RS->getColumnVal("name"))))) {echo "selected=\"selected\"";} ?>><?php echo($Lang_RS->getColumnVal("name")); ?></option>
<?php
$Lang_RS->moveNext();
} //dyn select
$Lang_RS->moveFirst();
?>
</select

)

Because there no respected form on this loop for multiple update records assist.

I'm afraid I still don't understand the issue. Are you saying your select list doesn't have any elements to pick from? I may need to do screen sharing with you to determine where you are getting stuck. I'm really not even sure what I'm looking for.

Okay. I will let you know When I get home tomorrow noon so you can see an example with screen Sharing.

He is an example that show the issue. Even when the <option></option> element has a loop multiple update records do not recognize repeated region.

Multiple update is usually to update multiple records with multiple form fields. You may be using the wrong interface. I need to understand what you are trying to do by seeing the page in context. Maybe a normal update server behavior is what you need.
