partial form

db tables:

project: id, name, desc, portfolio_id (fk)

portfolio: id, name

relationship: portfolio may contain many projects, a project can only be associated with one portfolio.


user enters project information (id, name, desc) via project create form.

he can then enter a portfolio via portfolio create form.

the question lies now how can the user associate a project with a portfolio?

The solution is to create a ‘partial’ project update screen, accessible only from the portfolio screen, that includes a project drop down list to pick from. A selected project is then associated to the portfolio ($_GET) and saved to the database via update record.

Any direction on how to build please?
