PHP Post Dynamic Data

Hi Experts

I have a page which is dynamically created from data within a MySQL database (prs.php).  The table I get this data from is called ReturnItem, it has a primary key ReturnID which is an auto_increment integer.

I then have another table within the database called PRS which stores additional values about each ReturnItem record.

The prs.php page displays data from the returnitem table, then I need to add 3 textboxes for each ReturnItem record so users can add that data to the PRS table via a form Post method.

the prs.php form posts to prsadd.php

How do I send the form to another page and add each new record it to the PRS table with the proper ReturnID number???

Thanks in advance!

after inserting a new record in prs.php, use this function mysql_insert_id() to get its id
you can save that id as session variable $_SESSION ['returnID'] = mysql_insert_id(), or you can send it to the other page as quaery string

after db insert use
header ("Location: page2.php?id=".mysql_insert_id())

but better use session method, as to prevent security hazards!

good luck

$rid $phone $model textbox1 textbox2 textbox3  - rid = 1
$rid $phone $model textbox1 textbox2 textbox3  - rid = 14
$rid $phone $model textbox1 textbox2 textbox3  - rid = 15

name your text boxes as array and give them rid as the key
$rid $phone $model textbox1[1] textbox2[1] textbox3[1]  - rid = 1
$rid $phone $model textbox1[14] textbox2[14] textbox3[14]  - rid = 14

in the next page, loop through these array
foreach ($_POST['textbox1'] as $key => $element) {
 $value1 = $_POST['textbox1'][$key];
 $value2 = $_POST['textbox2'][$key];
 $value3 = $_POST['textbox3'][$key];
}
