i need a form that pulls data from database and then after the submit button it will save it to another table.

the form will have 3 selects that are connected, all of them are filled with a table info. when the first one is choosen the second one will appear and so on. also the form will have to save the text from the selects, not the value:

Code: Select all

  echo ("<option value=\"$row[cod_ano]\ " . ($ano == $row["cod_ano"]? " selected" : "" ) . "> ".$row['nome_ano'] . "</option>");

Sounds like something I've got - it starts with a table (spreadsheet) id, first, last, email...... and each line starts:
<a href=edit.php?id=$id>$id</a> </td><td>$first......

At the top of the script:

13 $list = array ('id', 'first', 'last', 'delivery', 'misc',
14 'renew', 'address', 'city', 'state', 'zip', 'route',
15 'email', 'zone', 'phone', 'update', 'delete');
16 foreach ($list as $item) {
17 $$item = $_GET ["$item"];
18 }
Is how I return everything.
20 echo "<input type=hidden name=id value=$id>";

23 mysql_connect ("local.....
24 mysql_select_db ("mydb...

25 if ( "$update" == "Update" )
26 {
27 $query = "update table set first='$first',last='$last'....where id=$id;
28 $mres1 = mysql_query ($query); myres1 = 1 of update worked

35 $query = "select * from table where id = '$id';";
36 $mres1 = mysql_query ($query);
37 $cust = mysql_fetch_row ($mres1);

Then rebuild the form:
echo "<table... <tr... <td... $cust[0] ... $cust[1]...
<input type=submit...
<input type=button Back...

So then I go to the main web page I get
1 Tom Jones
2 Mary Smith
3 Bill....

The leading numbers (1,2,3,...) are a link to edit.php. The id is passed to edit.php where it does select * from table where id = $id; then build the form with data filled in. Anything can be changed (ie it's "Robert" not "Bob", it's 22 Twain not 22 Wain) and hit Submit which saves the changes and redisplays the form. This is kind of high level with a lot of details missing but then your details and my details are prob. not the same. The main web page is not editable, only the form showing one person is.

Hope this can help.
