Here is a MultiPage MOD that will let you span the input of your db over multiple pages. This is not a cut & paste MOD, but rather a base to build upon. It cannot be easily adapted into an existing dbman setup. It is best used for things like order forms and membership applications. For modifying or deleting you cannot search, you will have to "list all" and select which record to modify; however, for viewing you can search.
I've tried to comment the changes I've made, but if you are not familiar with dbman or html, you are going to have a hard time modifying this file.

Here is the basic way the file works:

Page One
--------------
hidden fields for pages 2 & 3
input fields for page 1

Page Two
-------------
hidden fields for pages 1 & 3
input fields for page 2

Page Three
-------------
hidden fields for pages 1 & 2
input fields for page 3

You are "adding" a record when you submit page 1, but modifying that same record when you submit pages 2 & 3 (unless you are modifying an existing record - then you are modifying all 3 pages).

I use META tags to take you from page to page. I don't show you the record that was just entered - instead I take you back to the "home" page, but you can change that if you want to, by changing the link for PageStatus=Done under modify_success. There is a lot of streamlining you can do, but if I did it then you'd have an even harder time trying to follow what I did.

Good Luck!
