Hello.

 

Could I please request some guidance with editing data?

 

I'm looking to build a form, which will pull data from a database and display it in the form, so it can be edited.

However I don't know the correct way to enter the data into the form.

 

or, I'll ask the question another way :)

How do I edit a record held in a database please?

 

Thank you.

You edit records using the UPDATE statement: http://www.w3schools.com/sql/sql_update.asp

 

To put data into a form, pull the data out of the database using an ordinary SELECT query, then print the values into the value attribute of the input element.

<input type="text" name="fname" value="<?php echo $data['first_name']; ?>">

Hello again.

 

I've tried the suggestion above, however I can't get it to work, as I'm getting a blank field.

I have also written the code below, and I'm still getting a blank field next to the Account Name.

 

Could I please request if anyone could write the correct coding for me?

Thank You.

<form name="edit_account" action="EDITING" method="POST">
