Hi All you clever people

I trying to develop a web page for internal use, whereby I can place icons in a table etc as to whether or not a person in the company is IN/Out of the office. I was trying to do it with a forms option button etc however if wrote the data to an internal DB, but other users cannot read the status, it just reset all back to default.

Any suggestions or how/ if I can do this.

i.e Simon is IN or Simon is OUT

Hmmm it's difficult for outsiders to help you with this, as they would need to understand your entire process of logging in the user and how this information is stored/ accessed...

Hi ddadmin

Access is just via a htm web page i.e user opens, or receptionist opens and click in/out for name. Thats why i was thinking of the option box fromt he forms. rgds,Simonf

Merely clicking "in/out" doesn't persist this info, however. You need to then store this information on the server end (ie: to a mySQL database), so another user that views the same page can then be served with this information.

Hi ddadmin

That what I seem to be battling with... I seem to write the data, however when someone else opens the page it does not read. Suggestions on code??
