I am writting an edit form type section for a web site and it uses 2 tables. I
have it done in pieces and now am working on sewing it together. Here is my
First I have 2 tables. One is Categories, and the other is Projects. here is
what sections I have in these 2 tables:
I have 2 types of edit pages, one is for just adding and editing the Category
Table the other to add and edit the Project table. Now what I am trying to do
it the following. (I am going to break this down into parts, doing one part at
a time. So this is a multi part question) I want to take the Project page and
have the Category Name be the order by for the page, wich means I need an
innerjoin. I am kind of at a loss how I would write that and still be able to
edit the record without the innerjoin getting in the way. (This will also be
used on the Category page as a nav link to edit all the projects with the
corresponding category and that will be the only projects that will appear is
the ones assigned to that category.
But first I need just to ORDER BY Categories.Name in my Querry so that if you
just choose to go to this page and view / edit all categories you can.
Here is my code so far. I need to have the Project manager page organize all
the projects by Category.Name
<cfquery name="proMan" datasource="#sitedatasource#" username="#siteUserID#"
SELECT Projects.Name AS PName, Projects.CategoryID, Projects.ProjectID
Categories.Name AS CName, Categories.CategoryID
INNERJOIN Projects ON Categories
FROM Projects, Categories
Project Name: #PName#
Project category: #CName#
<form action="Project-Action.cfm" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="ID" value="#ID#">
<input type="submit" name="proj_Edit" value=" Edit ">
<input type="submit" name="proj_Delete" value="Delete">
I know this is wrong, so How do I make it work?
(Then I will go into the next phase of the question about being able to go
from teh Category Manager page to edit the projects just associated to the
respective category, unless it is easier to do that part now. Then I will post
the code from the Categories page so we can do an innerjoin there and make a
link to edit projects in that category.)
Thank you. I know this is conveluted, but it is a big section and a lot of
little odds and ends to tie in.
