Jim (or anyone else who's feeling charitable this morning),

Thanks for all your help. I really appreciate it. I wonder if you'd have
time to look one more time at the two methods I've got that aren't
working. I've included the actual code for my job posting product. Perhaps
someone will find it instructive. I have a feeling that the remaining
problem is not directly related to the processing of the form by the
PythonScript. I also included the traceback at the end of this message.

Here are the two methods. I have a table that displays the currently
available jobs and displays two little icons which call the edit or delete
methods on the corresponding instance of the 'Job Posting' class. The edit
icon links to the 'editJobForm' method which in turn calls the
'editFormAction' method that actually processing the change.

field on the form. Click on the "Submit Edits" button at the bottom of the
screen to save your changes to the database.</p>
