Hi again.

I have carried out a search, then displayed the results in a table on a php 
page called admininfo.php:

$row = pg_fetch_object($result, 0);

$test = "";

	   for ($rw = 0; $rw < $maxrows; $rw++)
		echo " <tr> ";

		for ($fld = 0; $fld < $maxfields ; $fld++)

    	                echo "<td width=\"418\" class=\"tabletext\" 
		echo pg_Result($result,$rw,$fld);
		$test .= pg_Result($result,$rw,$fld);
		echo "</td>";

		echo "<form method=post action=updaad.php>\n";

		echo "<td width=\"194\" class=\"tabletext\" height=\"38\"> </td> </tr>";


Now, i would like to parse the information displayed in the table to 
textfields on the page updaad.php, i've used a link to do this:

<a href="updaad.php">Update</a>

On the page updaad.php, i have displyed the textfields using the following 

echo "Admin ID Number: <input type=text name=\"formadid\" value=\"$fld\"><br 
echo "Name: <input type=text name=\"formname\" value=\"$fld\"><br />\n";
echo "Surname: <input type=text name=\"formsurname\" value=\"$fld\"><br 
echo "Phone: <input type=text name=\"formphone\" value=\"$fld\"><br />\n";
echo "Email: <input type=text name=\"formemail\" value=\"$fld\"><br />\n";
echo "Username: <input type=text name=\"formusername\" value=\"$fld\"><br 
echo "Password: <input type=text name=\"formpassword\" value=\"$fld\"><br 
echo "Building: <input type=text name=\"formbuilding\" value=\"$fld\"><br 
echo "Postcode: <input type=text name=\"formpsotcode\" value=\"$fld\"><br 
echo "<input type=submit value=Update></form>\n";

but i am unable to write the information displayed in the table in 
admininfo.php, to the textfields in updaad.php.

Has anybody got any suggestions? :-)
