Yes, that makes perfect sense. I was thinking that i would need to make a separate table that has those conditions (y/n, textbox, textarea, etc). My problem was linking and associating them. Like how would step 1 in table main know that it requires a textbox, how would step 2 know that it requires a fill in table with 4 cols and 8 rows for data, how would step know know it requires a checkbox, etc? The date I am working with is a complete mess, i am now getting the structure correct, but this table has the most problems, because it requires some input. I hope i am making sense explaining this.
thanks for your help
