    The reason that on average you require 3 posts per question to get only 38% of them answered is that you fail to provide sufficient information about the problem. See:

    <li> How to ask questions
    <li> {message:id=9360002}

    For APEX-related questions, always provide:

    <li>Full APEX version
    <li>Full DB/version/edition/host OS
    <li>Web server architecture (EPG, OHS or APEX listener/host OS)
    <li>Browser(s) and version(s) used
    <li>Theme
    <li>Template(s)
    <li>Page/region/item type(s)

    Anoo,

    You can use apex collections to store data temporarily and build a form on top of that collection so that users can preview the data. Once they are satisfied with the data, you can insert data from collection to original table. Do a search on apex Collections in the form, you would find lot of information about how to store and retive data from apex collections.

    Thanks,
    Manish
