Hi,

The following code adds extra rows of text boxes to add further data.
But im having issue with looping through them and adding them into my database.

Is my mothod correct as im getting the error "Invalid argument supplied for foreach() "

below is my code

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery-2.0.3.js"></script>
<?php
include "../include/db.php";
if (!empty($_POST['ok'])) {
    
    if (!empty($_POST['Loop'])) {
        $i = 0;
        echo "hi";
        foreach ($_POST['Loop'] as $r) {
            //add to database
            
            $dateFormated = split('/', $_POST['theDate' . $i]);
            $Date         = $dateFormated[2] . '-' . $dateFormated[1] . '-' . $dateFormated[0];
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            
            $Sport = test_input($_POST["Sport" . $i]);
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            $Pick  = test_input($_POST["Pick" . $i]);
            
            $Bookie = test_input($_POST["Bookie" . $i]);
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            
            if (strpos($_POST["Odds" . $i], '/') !== false) {
                $Odds = round(fraction(test_input($_POST["Odds" . $i])), 2);
            } else {
                $Odds = test_input($_POST["Odds" . $i]);
            }
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            $BackorLay = test_input($_POST["BackorLay" . $i]);
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            
            $Stake = floatval(test_input($_POST["Stake" . $i]));
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            
            
            
            $Com = test_input($_POST["Com" . $i]);
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            
            
            $Outcome = test_input($_POST["Outcome" . $i]);
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            
            
            
            $Reduction = test_input($_POST["Reduction" . $i]);
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
            
            
            
            $PlaceDiv = test_input($_POST["PlaceDiv" . $i]);
            // check if name only contains letters and whitespace
