hey you guys have probably seen my other 2 threads but i said they were completed so i decided to create one more for this small problem.

I realized that when i submit my form it sends me only the selected first names for some reason.

Il post my script bellow and if someone can just help me out with that. If i don't get that fixed it will be really quite hard to find out who got chosen for the questions.

Also the weird thing is every other time i use the user id it comes up as the full name as it should.

In my database the user_id holds a name in this form FIRSTNAME LAST NAME

so basically an example is jonh doh

I don't have the first and last names split.

Hope someone can help...

Well I would suggest that you put the first name and last name into separate fields. I think it is because it doesnt post spaces or anything after them. Perhaps you could have an underscore if you want to keep them all in one field. I have tried get, that also doesnt give anything after spaces.

thats bad for me, i cant go re type them... took way to long.

any way to fix this problem ?
