in reply to input form and MySQL across columns

If you name the input fields like this using a character say - that you know will not occur in your item names:

<input name="Shoes-1" size=2> <input name="Shoes-2" size=2> <input name="Shoes-3" size=2> <input name="Shoes-4" size=2> <input name="Shoes-5" size=2>

and likewise Tires etc. then it will be easy for you to test whether the form has sent you back "Shoes-2" etc. and if it has, you can use a SQL Update statement to modify just the one column in one row:

update ... set qty2 = ... where name = "Shoes";

    Naming the input fields with unique names is not an issue, the problem is using multiple input fields on a single row of the MySQL table. I also have working queries to manage the SQL table, again not an issue there. Thanks for your reply.
