What exactly do you want to do. A bit vague.<BR><BR>Do you want to retrieve records from a database with the ability to display them on the page and then change and update them at the same time? If this is the case then the following code might help.<BR><BR>1. First you have to retrieve the appropriate record you are interested in from the database. You can display this on the screen as follows:<BR><BR><TR><BR><TD width="200">Bills to be paid:</TD><TD width="100"><input type="text" value="<%=objRec2("LetBills")%>" name="LetBills"></TD><BR></TR><BR><BR>'value' parameter displays the information from the database within the text box (create the recordset first etc to obtain the information)<BR><BR>You contain this table row within the <form> tags with a submit button at the bottom. When you submit the page through to page2.asp then you do an update function is the same way that you would any ordinary form. Be sure to find the correct record that needs to be updated and do not do a rst.addnew. Omit this and simply assign the values into the correct recordset followed by a rst.update.<BR><BR>Good luck!
thx for your help.This more clearly is what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to populate multiple records within a table " no problem " but, the last field/column is a check box for inventory where the user would go down the table using the check box to conduct an inventory. this inputed value within a table is giving me problems. how can I populate a table and at the same time use it to update multiple records. <BR><BR>At anyrate I will try what you gave me thx again.
