this is probably real easy.

I am trying to develop a form that would allow my user to define how many rows the next page will have.

example:

user inputs usual infomation (first name, last name, address, etc...)

now this person is also going to register other people on the same card, check, moneyorder.....

I will give them an option to check like

are you registering other people ..?  Yes No (radio btn,default no)

once the user checks the radio btn (yes) then they will have to put a value in another field (colums/people)

let say they put 10.

hence the next page(form action would) would now show a table with 10 rows and 2 colums:

first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
first name: (text field)            Last name:(textfield)
                        (submit Btn2)
this will allow the user to register 10 more people under prefered payment method.


please help...

Try this.  They have selected the number of extra fields on the page.  This form field was named otherPeople.  When the form submits, it send the value of this form field.  The second page should look similar to this:

<form>
<cfoutput>
<cfloop index="theCnt" from="1" to="#form.otherPeople#" step="1">
first name: <input type="text" name="othPplFirst#theCnt#">  Last name: <input type="text" name="othPplLast#theCnt#">  <br>
</cfloop>
</cfoutput>
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
</form>

This should display a row for the number selected on the previous page and each form element will be named differently.
