Hi Im trying to get the save button to work. The print button works fine but when I click on the save button all I see are the three options csv, excel & pdf and nothing happens, when I right click in it, it says movie not loaded. Any help ?

my code is
order: [ 1, 'desc' ],

"tableTools": {
        "sRowSelect": "os",

          "sSwfPath": "/flash/copy_cvs_xls_pdf.swf",
        "aButtons": [

            { "sExtends": "editor_create", "editor": editor },
            { "sExtends": "editor_edit",   "editor": editor },
            { "sExtends": "editor_remove", "editor": editor },


            "print",
            {"sExtends":    "collection","sButtonText": "Save","aButtons":    [ "csv", "xls", "pdf" ] }

    ]
    }
} );

} );

                    "tableTools": {
                        "aButtons": [
                             {
                                 "sTitle": "List Area",

    Is Flash enabled for your browser? TableTools requires Flash.

    Another option is to use Buttons which is the replacement for TableTools and does not require Flash.

    Thank you allan - http://www.merlinlibrary.com/admin/backup_orders_cms.php

    another weird thing that is happening in that table is that some rows are just vanishing. The would be inserted into the database because I receive a confirmation email from the front end but as soon as they arrive at the back end, some rows randomly vanish. I've been a week trying to figure it out

    Hey Allan any news on the save csv, excel & pdf buttons ? greatly appreciated

    If you look at the console in your browser, or the server's error log, you will see something like:

    http://www.merlinlibrary.com/swf/copy_csv_xls_pdf.swf Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

    Which explains why it isn't working. Put the SWF file in place and it should.

    The would be inserted into the database because I receive a confirmation email from the front end but as soon as they arrive at the back end, some rows randomly vanish.

    Without being able to see the full code base, I couldn't say what that is happening. If it is a DataTables issue, the DataTables support options would cover it, although not if it is a server-side issue.
