I have write javascript to create form field when button is click.

function addEvent(myTable){
var lastRow = myTable.rows.length;
var x1=myTable.insertRow(lastRow);
var a=x1.insertCell(0);
var a1=x1.insertCell(1);
var x2=myTable.insertRow(lastRow+1);
var b=x2.insertCell(0);
var b1=x2.insertCell(1);
var x3=myTable.insertRow(lastRow+2);
var c=x3.insertCell(0);
var c1=x3.insertCell(1);
var x4=myTable.insertRow(lastRow+3);
var d=x4.insertCell(0);
var d1=x4.insertCell(1);
var x5=myTable.insertRow(lastRow+4);
var e=x5.insertCell(0);
var e1=x5.insertCell(1);
var x6=myTable.insertRow(lastRow+5);
var f=x6.insertCell(0);
var f1=x6.insertCell(1);
var x7=myTable.insertRow(lastRow+6);
var g=x7.insertCell(0);
var g1=x7.insertCell(1);
var x8=myTable.insertRow(lastRow+7);
var h=x8.insertCell(0);
var h1=x8.insertCell(1);
a.innerHTML="Event Date";
a1.innerHTML='<input type="text">' + "Pick-Up Time" + '<input type="text">';
b.innerHTML="Event Date End";
b1.innerHTML='<input type="text">' + "Drop-Off Time" + '<input type="text">';
c.innerHTML="Coach";
c1.innerHTML="<select size=1 name='Loc' id='Loc'><option selected>Select a Location<option value=1>North East<option value=2>Soth America<option value=3>Canada</select>";
d.innerHTML="Driver";
d1.innerHTML="<select size=1 name='Loc' id='Loc'><option selected>Select a Location<option value=1>North East<option value=2>Soth America<option value=3>Canada</select>";
e.innerHTML="Origination";
e1.innerHTML='<input type="text">';
f.innerHTML="Destination";
f1.innerHTML='<input type="text">';
g.innerHTML="Itinerary";
g1.innerHTML='<input type="textarea">';
h.innerHTML="Pax";
h1.innerHTML='<input type="text">';
}

Then I want to insert value that user type in in database by using cfinsert. This javascript function can be called multiple time. How do i use cfloop and cfinsert to access database in this case.
I already have the submit button to submit form at some point, but I dont know how to loop cfinsert to insert value in database.
Please help. Thanks

what kind of DB are you running?? I are you on a Windows Server or Linux Server? I find it easier to get quicker results off of PHP or ASP.

window sql server 2000. and I use coldfusion to create the rest of the form.

You need to name your form fields, and then pass a list of the form fields to the CFINSERT statement. Make sure you have a table in your data source that has fields defined for all the elements in your form. Or you can just manually write an SQL statment and stick that into a CFQUERY tag. Sounds like you are doing this dynamically in your Java, so you'll need a dynamic SQL statment, and CFINSERT is not good for that, instead do a CFQUERY and in the SQL Where clause use multiple AND's; and but start with a condition that is always true; WHERE 1=1... This will allow you to add as many extra items as you need; or non if that happens to be the case. The 1=1 is important because without it you'll get an error if there are no extra fields to add. If you are lost, I'd suggest you pick up the book "SQL for Smarties"; SQL will help you in many future projects, and is used in all programming languages that interact with a DB. CFINSERT is just a shortcut, and is too basic for what you need...
