Hi.

Invisible code is extremely hard to debug.

Please show us the parts of your code that are causing the problem.
(Note, not all of the code, just the parts that aren't working)

<?php
include("connectivity.php");
$category=$_REQUEST['category'];
$description=$_REQUEST['description'];
$parentid=$_REQUEST['parentid'];
$path=$_REQUEST['path'];
$catid=$_REQUEST['catid'];
mysql_query("update category set vcategory='$category',vdescription='$description' where icatid=$catid");
header("location:view.php?parentid=$parentid&path=$path");
?>

hope it will help you to solve my problem

Where is view.php? whether it is in a same folder or another.

ya its in same folder should paste that code too

Dude, your code is OK. Is there any error message?

no ya its just don't shows the value i have checked with db also and its ok
is there any thing wrong with this

echo "<td><a href=\"edit.php?parentid=$obj->iparentid&catid=$obj->icatid&path=$obj->tPath\">Edit</a></td>";

Technically no, but you should really enclose object members in brackets when you use them in strings, if only to make it easier to read the code:

echo "<td><a href=\"edit.php?parentid={$obj->iparentid}&catid={$obj->icatid}&path={$obj->tPath}\">Edit</a></td>";

(Also note how I used the tags here to display that in a nicely formatted code box)[/i]

Anyways, these bits and pieces of code are doing no good.

Ignore what I said earlier, just past the entire files here. The [I]edit.php[/I] and the [I]view.php[/I] files, as well as anything else that might be useful.

Within &#91;code=php] .. &#91;/code] tags, please.[code=php] tags here to display that in a nicely formatted code box)
