Google lets me down once again :-) Coming from a PHP background I know I can take submitted form data, mix it, mash it and put it together in very odd ways. In other words do this. $title = "My Title" $sub_title = "My Sub Title" $full_title = $title . "-" . $sub_table And submit $full_title to the database. I have yet to find a solution for this in Rails - I know there is one but being new to all this I am probably just missing it. Basically I want to take form data - mash it together and then submit it to the database. Does this go in def create? If not where. Thanks. AndrewM

Grab them while they are still params. @record.full_title = params[:title] + "-" + params[:sub_title]

In the controller, take the form data directly into the model. Put the temporary data into non-DB backed attributes, then call a method to mix and mash the form data into the DB backed attributes. -- -- Tom M.
