Thanks, but no that is what I have already. I would like the ability to
give the user five drop down menus displaying all 30 fields from a database,
allowing them to choose a field in each from the table in any order they
choose and then have a page where this information is displayed in a tables
beginning with the headings of each field and then the search results from
the five selected choices. This would be very helpful in a large database
when you only want certain info.
I've built an inventory form for the college with over 30 fields and it
works great, but I don't need to pull up all the data from each record all
the time and I could write a static search, but I thought it would be fun to
learn something new. I guess I need to learn how to parse the value that
the user chooses so that mysql can read the variable, but I'm a painter not
a computer programmer.
Can anyone help?
PS Micheal, thanks again,
