Again, if this SAS/Intrnet, another consideration is the service timeout.
If the time required for the update process exceeds the service timeout,
you're better off having your SAS/Intrnet program ( i.e. the one initiated
by the HTML form ) fire off a batch SAS process to do the update. If
notification of update completion is important to the user, the HTML page
back to the browser can display update status ( as set by the batch update
process or dataset interrogation ). You can also use the META REFRESH tag
on the returned page to automatically redisplay update status every XX

If by "SAS Dispatcher" you mean the Application Dispatcher
in SAS/Intrnet, there's no restriction on the number of records that may be
updated, or if there is it's a large limit. I have a form that updates as
many as 6 records in 2 different tables.

I have multiple records with one Key Variable as follow:
ID is the key variable.
ID Camp_name L_code
0004 Duba_maufacturing 32
0005 Duba_maufacturing 25
0006 Duba_maufacturing 32
I need to use SAS Dispatcher FORM to update all records in
one form. But a
form can update only one record at a time. Is there anyway
to update all
these records displayed on this form at the same time and
update it at once
with one "Submit" Button.
