Hey guys!! I could use some help on this problem.

I think I have most of it but I keep getting an error message of

Record Not Found:

The specified record was not found.

here is the code I am using and it connects to a Weblayout with the Email and UNIV ID fields already present because if your Emal and and UNIV dont match the db then you cannot register.

The password is entered 2 times as you can see from the code.

What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions to better this problem??

thanx a million

Howdy, CDML! If you post this in the CDML forums, Garry or some other JS savy folks may be able to help better, but my guess is that you are performing an -edit action before querying the db. You specify the recID using [FMP-CurrentRecID] but it has no value until a query is sent to the Web Companion.

That's only a quick glance guess, though, since I've only done a very limited amount of JS and I'm not sure what precedes this page. Sorry if I'm not paying close enough attention...
