I don't think that fieldorder needs to be an array. I don't see you using it as a multiselect. Does this field occur multiple times on the form?

I have a script that is passing a area in a $_POST and it does not pass

its empty but when I look at it with $_REQUEST['fieldorder'] the data is
there. This seams very strange to me. It has been working for about 6
months with no problem and then all of a sudden it does not pass the
data anymore. The real funny thing is the rest of the data that is sent that is not an area gets past in a $_POST works just fine.Would there be something in the php.ini file that I have changed that would case this.

What method is your form using?



And what is an area?  A textarea?

This is the form that is being sent as a post and the fieldorder[] is the part that is not sending properly. But it has worked for about a year in the script. It just stopped working. and I did not change anything in this script

<form action="import.php" method="post">
<!-- <form action="testimport.php" method="post"> -->
<INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME=members_id VALUE=<?php echo $_SESSION["members_id"];?>>
  <INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME=copy VALUE='<?php echo $_POST['copy'];?>'>
  <INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME=format VALUE=<?php echo $_POST['format'];?>>
   <input type="hidden" name="doit" value="no">

<TR><TH><font class=fieldlabel>Our Fields</font></TH><TH><font class=fieldlabel>Your Data</font></TH></TR>
      /*echo $_POST['format'];
      echo $copy;
            $fieldnumber = 0;
        while (list(,$field) = each($fields)){
            echo "    <TR>\n";
            echo "        <TD><SELECT NAME=fieldorder[]>\n";
            $anyselected = '';

            while (list(,$description) = each($descriptionfields)){
                 list(,$possible) = each($possiblefields);

$selected = @(($fieldorder[$fieldnumber] == $possible) ? 'SELECTED' : ''); if ($fieldnumber >= count($fieldorder) && !$anyselected){
                    $selected = 'SELECTED';
echo "<OPTION value=\"$possible\" $selected>$description</OPTION>\n";
            echo "        </SELECT></TD>\n";
            echo "        <TD>$field</TD>\n";

Yes the field order does have a multiselect it selects the order that you what to import a list from a CVS file like first name last name address ets..... it can have 2 up to 25 diferent selections in it. The question was not about that it is way can I not receive the data in that field as a $_POST but I can with a $_REQUEST all the other $_POSTs go thrue without any problem
