Hello all,

I'm currently struggeling with the following. I have some products which are saved in the database. From this products I wish to create packages containing one ore more products. One product may occure in more than one package and one package may contain multiple products: many-many relation between products and packages.
Now I have some problems to create a code to actually save the selected products. I'm capable to create a form where one may enter a Package name and to generate checkboxes per product (using checkboxSetField). I spend many time searching the web to see if SS had any build in feature for this, but I can't find it. Aren't there any? Do you maybe have a suggestion on how to tackle this problem?

Any help appreciated,
