Hello I am really new at this and are having trouble with MySQL updating .php files in the database program I am using. This used to work until I changed some of the .php file. I only changed the front end of these files and cannot see why what used to update from MySQL is now not working. Any help in regards to this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mica

Welcome to Daniweb! Can you show us your script so that we can make out where you are going wrong ?

This is the page for the user input. Show us addrecord1.php. And, if you have the action file in the same folder, its not required to give the whole path (/query/addrecord1.php). You can directly give addrecord1.php. Please show us addrecord1.php. And, please, while posting your code, put it within [/code ] tags. :)[code ] [/code ] tags. :)

Hello nav33n

Is this what you needed?

Also thank you for this:

$query = "INSERT INTO repairs (date, client, model, batch, chassis, serial, fault, prefault, remedy, status, remote, soak, job_type, tech) VALUES (".'"'.$d$

and

$query = "SELECT id, client, model, batch, chassis, fault, prefault, remedy, status, soak, tech FROM repairs WHERE date=".'"'.$date.'"'." AND job_type=".'"'$

and

print "<table border=1><tr><th>id</th><th>Client</th><th>Model</th><th>Batch</th><th>Chassis</th><th>Fault</th><th>Existing Fault</th><th>Remedy</th><th>Sta$

The query should be something like this, $query="INSERT INTO TABLENAME (COL1,COL2,COL3,COL4) VALUES ('VAL1','VAL2','VAL3','VAL4')"; :)

hello again all this is starting to get frustrating now. I think I am in over my head. All I am trying to do is update a drop down text field in a php file and the field is located on my MySQL database.

Where did you get this script from ? Its incomplete. I hope you know the basics of sql(select, insert, update and delete). Check this below script. Enter the details and click on submit. On top, it shows all the form data that has been sent. Populating a dropdown box is not a difficult thing.

To get options in a dropdown list, you can run a query, fetch the records between option tag. Eg.

echo "<select name="usernames">";
echo "<option value="">Select a user</option>";
$query="select name from table";//query to select name
$result=mysql_query($query);
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
$name=$row['name'];
   echo "<option value=$name>$name</option";
}
.....

This will list all the users in the dropdown list.

Nav
