Choose the tools your web server offers and craft your code to do this. This is something I would expect a second or third year programmer to tackle.

That's a strange answer. Your question (dynamic tabular input) clearly is about the front-end. The database clearly is back-end.

A student of mine did it as part of his final thesis, programming in C#, so the answer clearly is yes. He made kind of real-time screen-generator that used the data dictionary of MySQL to generate a basic maintenance screen for a table given as parameter.
Just like MS Access or the MySQL Query browser do if you open a table.

Can I edit my post? I wish i could drop that. hahaha
Sorry I didn't make myself clear.
It should be: "I'm using PHP." -My mistake.

Surely it can be done in PHP also. You just generate the correct html as needed for a table.

PHP and MySQL are a common mix.

But as Kees noted, the student was in their final year so it's not something you find a beginner crafting. They try but some get frustrated as they are learning the craft.
