I have two forms on a page.  The first one has a select box that the user picks the employee record from.  The second one displays the details of the record.  I am try to add a edit button so they can change a value.  When I click the edit button, the page refreshes and then another choosing of an employee is required.  If you bring up the same employee the record has not changed.  
Any help is appreciated.
