Re: Is this just too hard for folks here? Or too stupid?
Mr. Carter, thank you very much! And thank you to all that responded -
that's all I really wanted, to know if it was possible. While some of you
were a little more "direct" in your ideas for me, I at least found out that
it cannot be done via straight html on a form layout. The tables idea is a
good one, and I'm going to research the arrays suggestion as well. For
those who were curious, the website is for a virtual airline for flight
simulator enthusiasts (see it at
http://www.flightsimnetwork.com/stpaulairlines/ ). And, I always put the
"REMOVETHIS" label in my email address because of a past history of
receiving spam after posting to usenet groups.
