I am guessing you are having trouble echoing out the values into a textarea. It has to be done differently than a textfield. This is off the top of my head and I hope somebody corrects me but textfield
[HTML]<input type="text" name="name" value="<? echo $record; ?>" />[/HTML]and textarea
[HTML]<textarea name="textarea" cols="50" rows="10"><?php echo $record; ?> </textarea> [/HTML]

Note the text area text goes outside the HTML tags
