I would suggest to give it a try with a Z Search Interface. See the same book, in the chapter on Relational Databases: http://www.plope.com/Books/2_7Edition/RelationalDatabases.stx#1-11 This assists you in making two pages, at your choice as either DTML Methods or Page Templates. Like most people here I would suggest going for the Page Templates. One is a form in which you can enter the values for your Z SQL Method. This then passes control to the second page, which is a report that gets its input by calling the Z SQL Method. The form basically is: <form action="<id of your report page" method="get"> ... <input type="SUBMIT" name="SUBMIT" value="Submit Query"> The report basically starts with: <html> <body tal:define="results here/<id of your Z SQL Method>"> Note that when your Z SQL Method only has an update or insert or delete it will usually not return a lot of results, so the report will be basically empty. I would say it is nice if the user gets some feedback, so put some related select statement after your normal query, even if it is just: SELECT * from your_table. This gives the report something to present to the user as visual feedback, instead of leaving him in the dark on whether the submission of the form actually had any permanent results. -- Maurits van Rees | http://maurits.vanrees.org/ [Dutch/Nederlands] Public GnuPG key: http://maurits.vanrees.org/var/gpgkey.asc "It can seem like you're doing just fine, but the creep's creeping into your mind." - Neal Morse
