Hello guys, I have a page that has a number of details views (insert page only) all broken up and placed in the accordion panes for data presentation and to catagorise the data entry. my question is how can I insert and edit with link buttons outside of the accordion to submit data in all the details views???

 What I need to acheive here is after the user clicks submit, and validation runs is to insert or update 5 details views simultainiously .

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
