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

greetings  runnerjp2005, , your "foreach" line as -
         foreach ($_POST['Loop'] as $r) {
is NOT appropriate for the  input you have as -
         <input type="hidden" name="Loop" value="loop">

and cannot work, also you never use the $r variable in that foreach loop, You should just remove that foreach loop

it looks like many of your code should work without it.

ask questions if you need more information.
