Form update mode

I have made a form with the database wizard.

In the script the wizard made it says the following:

// The default mode of this script allows a user to add a new record
// to table 'addressbook' in database 'buddyand_address'.
// To have this form function in update mode, the script needs to be
// called with a parameter for 'id' (key record field).

My question. Whats the best way to go as far as allowing a user to update thier own record?

Hi there - sorry it took a while to reply. I am not quite sure I understand the question - are you asking how to call the script generated by the wizzard such that it would do update? Or is your question about security and allowing different users to update their records? If it is the former,then the answer is you need to pass $id to it, if it is the latter than it is probably a subject for different forum.
Could you please give us more details? Thanks!

Your question sounds like "how to organize my DB properly".
You may want to add a table where your users will be listed with their IDs.
Then correct select statements and use this new table in joins...

Actually it all falls into RDBMS area and shouldn't be on this forum board Smile
