Hi there,

Having a small problem with a form, when it is submitted it inserts a duplicate record in the database, any idea what could be causing this?
<?
 
require_once('includes/session.php');
require_once('includes/oracle.php');
require_once('includes/debug.php');
 
if(isset($_GET['delete'])){
	$delete = oci_parse($connect,"DELETE FROM DOCSJOBGROUPS WHERE JOBGROUP_ID = :remove");
	@oci_bind_by_name($delete, ":remove",$_GET['delete']);
	oci_execute($delete);
}
 
if($_POST['addgroups'] == 'true'){
 
nicePrint($_POST);
	$add = oci_parse($connect,"INSERT INTO DOCSJOBGROUPS (JOBGROUP_ID, ORDER_NO_1, ORDER_NO_2) VALUES (JOBGROUP_ID_SEQ.NEXTVAL, :order_no_1, :order_no_2)");
	@oci_bind_by_name($add,":order_no_1", $_POST['order_no_1']);
	@oci_bind_by_name($add,":order_no_2", $_POST['order_no_2']);
	oci_execute($add);
	
}
 
?>

if there is no page reload caused by anything in your code after you submit your form - and I don't see
from your code where the page-reload could happen (your page with form is not 'home', is it?)
More likely I sense that trouble could be in your SQL-code, here:

$add = oci_parse($connect,"INSERT INTO DOCSJOBGROUPS (JOBGROUP_ID, ORDER_NO_1, ORDER_NO_2) VALUES (JOBGROUP_ID_SEQ.NEXTVAL, :order_no_1, :order_no_2)");

Not sure about the JOBGROUP_ID_SEQ.NEXTVAL syntax, but somehow my intuition says it could be
a reason (first inserting into the next available id, then again because of nextval adding an id with same
values ??)

but not sure about it, since I am not experienced with Oracle SQL and highly recommend you to post this issue
in the Oracle SQL zone, for real experts to contribute from there, too.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

One tip from me added:
