                    // tab of the developer tools
                    console.log(result);
                },
                error: function(xhr, resp, text) {
                    console.log(xhr, resp, text);
                }
            })
        });
    });

</script>
</body>
</html>

Please help.

Instead of naming the fields like "remark[]", put keys into those arrays. Like "remark[EE123]".

 

When you foreach on them you'll have that ID available to use.

foreach ($_POST["remark"] as $id => $remark) {
	$status = $_POST["status"][$id];
Make sure to double-check that the employee with that ID is allowed to be updated by this form - probably by using whatever criteria you had when you first showed the form.
