There is a chapter in the Zope Book called 'Advanced Zope Scripting' which gives some good examples. You can also find useful python scripts at

Hi Jonathon,

I will adjust my code. I have written some Python code but very simple tasks and would like to do more. I don't program that often. I work for a school system in Connecticut. So if you have an example of what your are talking about I am willing to try it.

Thanks again,

Subject: [Zope] Creating and displaying lists

I need to collect a list of student id numbers from one table so I can take
this list, find them in another table, and display their names so their
teachers can give them a score.

I still like to use DTML but I do not know if I have the sequence-number in
the proper format. This is what I have been playing with:

< BR>>

 >  >  > > ,  > > >

I think there is some confusion here. You should break this into 2 sections
(and it would be much easier in a python script), but if you want to use

The first section should build the list you are trying to display in the
SELECT statement. It looks like you are trying to create a list of 'tuples'
where each tuple consists of (id, lastname, firstname). I don't know where
your data is coming from, but you could do something like:

# creates an empty list

# add one
tuple (record) to the list

After you have built your list test it by displaying it: > studentList> to see if you have the right data in your list.

You can then proceed to the next section where you are building your SELECT
statements (warning: not tested and very ugly dtml)

 >  > " > > , > "_['sequence-item'][2]"> > > >

hth & Good Luck
