Populating 2 php pages from a MySQL table and updating the table by the ID no

I have 2 php pages at the moment which add a new field in a MySQL db table. The first page has data, this data is passed to page2 with session variables and then all the data gets entered in to the table.

I want to do an update to that table going by the ID no. selected.

On my first page, I have the following code that selects the "IO" no from the table (IO is primary key and is autoincremented):


$sql = "SELECT IO FROM bebo";
$result = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
echo "<form action='io_bebo_edit_page2.php' name='myform'>";
echo "<select name='IO' onChange='submit()'>";
echo "<option value=''>Select IO No</option>";
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result)) {
echo "<option value='{$row['IO']}'>{$row['IO']}</option>";
echo "</select>";
echo "</form>";

I want to be able to populate all the fields in page2 when I select the "IO" no, and then populate all the fileds on page3 as well when i click next.
When I go on to page2, I want to be able to change / edit any info and carry that accross to page3. And the same for page3, i want to edit anything and then udate the table according to the "IO" no.

At the moment I'm stuck after selecting the IO no on page1 and going on to page2
