yes, you can have multiple submit buttons, you would simply need to test for the value of that button on the server

if ($_POST['submit']=="delete"){
  //delete something
if ($_POST['submit']=="update"){
 //update something

and so one

I would like to know if you are able to create a PHP web form that has
different "SUBMIT" buttons --- or if you used the HTML command

<SELECT NAME="approval_command">
<OPTION>Delete Record
<OPTION>Update And Approve For Listing
<OPTION>For Management

Basically I want the delete record to find the record in the mySQL
database --- I added the auto_increment yesterday to help develop the
editing module --- I want the Update and Approve For Listing to change a
variable value from "0" to "1" and to accept any changes the pre-viewer has
made --- for example writing in "United States" instead of US and "For
Management" to change the variable value to "2".

Are any of you able to help me with this question?

Sincerely thank you.

It would again help me if a copy of your response is sent to my e-mail
