Explain a bit more what you want to do. A good thing would be a practice example.

let me explain ,
there are more than 300 records records in table,as

emp1 chkbox

emp2 chkbox

emp3 chkbox

:

:

NEXT button(to display next 10 records).

i am displaying 10 records at at a time,

Now i want to update only those employee names where the checkbox in front of that record is checked , else it should remain as it is.

the employee name are obviously are database items ,whereas chkbox are non databse items.

now the problem is that how can i map these checkboxes to the records as there is no any relation between them.

waiting for reply.

What do you mean, there is no relation between them?
The checkboxes are part of the records in Forms, aren't they?

if i am right then according to me,

The checkboxes are part of the records in Forms only when they are used as database items,
but
i am using them here only as a flag(non database items)
and accordign to flag i want to update database fields which displayed in textboxes.

waiting for reply.

But if you do add them to the (Forms)records, database-item or not, they _are_ related to the rest of the record, so you can relate them to that.

Could you explain us how did you did it? If it works, it works, but maybe someone could tell you a better way to do it, or no.

Congratulations and keep on that way.
