Have them enter the data as a comma delimited list like this: [table] Name,Address,City,Country Tom,Home,Brisbane,Australia ... [/table] Then you could parse looking for [table] and work on the data after till [/table] The first row would be the column headers. -- regards, Tom -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
