Say I wan to have something like the delete function in hotmail...where there is a column of checkboxes...if the user checked 4 boxes and presses the DELETE button, i mus know which rows to delete...<BR><BR>
What you describe would take a lengthy explanation. Basically you need to display the record from the db and put a check box next to it that has the value of the record ID or some other field. Put all of that into a form that submits to a page that performs the delete based on the value of the checkbox.
take a look at my script i wrote (EZLinkZ : http://www.ezlinkz.cjb.net )<BR>download that script and take a look at the two files called<BR><BR>ezlinkz_edit.asp<BR>ezlinkz_edit2.as p<BR><BR>the first file creates a table with records and checkboxes beside them to check which ones u want to delete...<BR>the second file actually deletes them....<BR><BR>hope that helps!
