Hi,
I'm struggling to update my table with columns that are identified through variables. For example, I want to update Day3 using the hidden field "NewDay." Eventually, all of my days will be set using hidden field variable. Right now the trouble seems to be the statement %s=%s. Any suggests how to make the column defined by a variable. Thank you in advance. -Dave

$updateSQL = sprintf("UPDATE schedule SET Day1=%s, Day2=%s, %s=%s, Day4=%s, Day5=%s, Day6=%s, Day7=%s, Day8=%s, Day9=%s, Day10=%s, Day11=%s, Day12=%s, Day13=%s, Day14=%s, Day15=%s, Day16=%s, Day17=%s, Day18=%s, Day19=%s, Day20=%s, Day21=%s, Day22=%s, Day23=%s, Day24=%s, Day25=%s, Day26=%s, Day27=%s, Day28=%s, Day29=%s, Day30=%s, Day31=%s, Day32=%s, Day33=%s, Day34=%s, Day35=%s, Day36=%s, Day37=%s, Day38=%s, Day39=%s, Day40=%s, Day41=%s, Day42=%s WHERE UserID=%s",

Use a regular variable like you would anywhere else. you can't use an expression like that in a sql statement. If it needs to be set to some starting value, do that above the sql statement then just use the variable in the statement.
