Hi all,

The last part would be a simple page to select updates that I would like to delete.

So heres the problem, I have little PHP MySQL knowledge. The application I am developing is in vb to show updates on software I publish on the network and general information to all users at logon, I have a webcontrol that is going to contain the finished output.

I am looking for some help to put together 3 parts, so 3 questions.

1. Just a simple add record form to MySQL db, 4 fields in the table(Updates).

Date   UpdateName Description   ID

2. Show the contents of the the updates in table form ie using expanding tables, the title click expands the description.

Start Menu Changes(UpdateName)                    23/03/07(Date)
blah blah blah.........................................................(Description)
Desktop Changes(UpdateName)                        22/03/07(Date)
blah blah blah.........................................................(Description)
Application Changes(UpdateName)                    21/03/07(Date)
blah blah blah.........................................................(Description)

3. Just a simple remove record form to MySQL db, 4 fields in the table(Updates).

I know being spoon feed isnt the way forward, but this is just a simple system I need to put in place so users know of changes etc..

Many Thanks
Steve

Here is the hole thing in a single file add , show , delete the sql for the table is at the top of the page

<?

/*##########SQL TABLE#################


CREATE TABLE `record` (
  `ID` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `Date` date NOT NULL,
  `UpdateName` varchar(255) NOT NULL,
  `Description` text NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`ID`)
);



*/

$db_name = "test";

$db = mysql_connect("localhost","root","qazplm");
mysql_select_db($db_name,$db);

if($_POST["op"]=="Add") {

      mysql_query("INSERT INTO record SET Date=now(), UpdateName='".$_POST["UpdateName"]."', Description='".$_POST["Description"]."'");


}

if($_POST["op"]=="Delete" && $_POST["del"]){

      
      $i=0;
      
      foreach($_POST["del"] as $value) {
      
            if($i==0) {
            
                  $str = " WHERE ID=".$value;
                  
            }else{
            
                  $str .= " OR ID=".$value;
            }            
            
      
            $i++;
      }
      
      $q = "DELETE FROM record ".$str;
      
      
      mysql_query("DELETE FROM record ".$str) or die(mysql_error());


}

      $get_record = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM record ORDER by Date");
