update 'rows you would update anyway' and 'oca=oca+1' where 'regular stuff' and 'oca=$ocaFromHiddenField' If you don't update the 'rows you would update anyway' and 'oca=oca+1' at the same time you run again into concurrency problems. -- Tim Van Wassenhove <http://home.mysth.be/~timvw> -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
