PHP "Form" best practice?

Using PHP I will have a form with about 50 fields on it.

One way to get to the page/form is to search by item ID.  If found the page will come up and the form will fill with existing data.

I would like to utilize the same page/form to "create" items.

What would be a good way to do this?

One way is to set each DB field to a variable and then populate the form using the variables.  For "new" items I would simply set the variables to defaults (usually blank or empty).

Is this about the only way?
