Straight table and inputbox

I have something like a simple order entry problem.

I have a list of products and the user can select one or a hundred. Once the choices are narrowed down I would like to give the user the option to enter a quantity for each product to order.

I was thinking a straight table with an input box right beside it giving the appearance that the input box is part of the straight table. But since the straight table can change sizes depending on how many products (rows) the user selects I need the same number of rows in the input box.

Now maybe a straight table and input box isn't the best choice but some how I need to allow the user to select the products and enter a quantity in a corresponding field. I am very open to suggestions other then "forget it" ... [:D]

Another idea is to have the Product represent rows(variables) in an input box, but I'm not sure how to load an input box from the rows selected in a straight table.

Thx for the help in advance.

Look for "Input Fields" in the help index. You use the inputfield statement in the script to tell it that you want to be able to edit the data in that field. I think that's what you're looking for. I haven't played with it much, though, so don't have an example.
