PHP next field

I use the code below to find certain fields:

***********
foreach ($_REQUEST as $theField => $Data){
      if (substr($theField,strlen($theField)-5,5) == "O~U~T"){
            if (is_numeric($Data * 1)){
                  if ($Data > 0){
                        echo $theField . " - " . $Data . "<br>";
                  }
            }
      }
}
***********
In my form, next to each O~U~T field is an I~N and S~O~L~D field.
I'd like to do something like this:
                        echo TheNextField . " - " . TheNextFieldsData . "<br>";
                        echo TheFieldAfterThat . " - " . TheNextFieldAfterThatData . "<br>";

How can I accomplish this please?

The foreach() statement contains two variables; these are the key and the data elements. Foreach is used to iterate over arrays and objects.  There are two kinds of array keys in PHP, index keys that are numeric and associative keys that are character strings.  The $_REQUEST superglobal variable is an associative array, so the keys are character strings.  That makes it difficult to use a numeric index to point to the "next" element of the array.

Here is what you might want to do:  Post a link to the web page that has the form, and post the actual PHP script that processes the form.  You can obscure passwords and such, but do not obscure any of the HTML or PHP code.  Armed with that information we may be able to help you get what you need.

Thanks... all I'm trying to do is to push this data into a db.  

The form contains, at least, many rows that have an O~U~T, I~N  and S~O~L~D column.

In one "insert" statement I want to push the three values.

This page is being converted from asp.  In asp the page referenced Request.Form.Item(intLoop).  intLoop checked for the O~U~T field

The sql statement used Request.Form.Item(intLoop), Request.Form.Item(intLoop + 1) and Request.Form.Item(intLoop + 3)
*NOTE Request.Form.Item(intLoop + 2) is a field that we don't need to push.

I am just trying to minimize the re-write...
