hi,
if i left a field blank in my table. when i tried to retrieve all the info out to the form. the text box supposed to have blank (because the corresponding field in the table is blank) appear a "/" ... i have tried to use trim() ... stripslashes() and none works so far. please help .

<?php
	require_once('auth.php');
	require_once('config.php');
	
	$link = mysql_connect(DB_HOST, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD);
	if(!$link) 
	{
		die('Failed to connect to server: ' . mysql_error());
	}
	
	//Select database
	$db = mysql_select_db(DB_DATABASE);
	if(!$db) 
	{
		die("Unable to select database");
	}
	
	$cid = $_SESSION['SESS_CUSTOMER_ID'];
	
	function clean($str) 
	{
		$str = @trim($str);
		
		while(strchr($str, '\\'))
		{
			$str = stripslashes($str);
		}
		
		if(get_magic_quotes_gpc()) 
		{
			$str = stripslashes($str);
		}
		return mysql_real_escape_string($str);
	}
	
	$qry="SELECT fname, lname, email, streetAddress,zip_id, passwd FROM customer WHERE customer_id='$cid'";
	$cResult=mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query($qry));
	
	/*
	$fn= "$cResult[0]";
	$ln= "$cResult[1]";
	$email= "$cResult[2]";
	$street= "$cResult[3]";
	$zipid= "$cResult[4]";
	$passwd = "$cResult[5]";
	*/
	$fn= clean($cResult[0]);
	$ln= clean($cResult[1]);
	$email= clean($cResult[2]);
	$street= "$cResult[3]";
	$zipid= "$cResult[4]";
	$passwd = "$cResult[5]";
	
	$qryZip ="SELECT zip, city, state_id FROM zipcode WHERE zip_id = '$zipid'";
	$zResult = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query($qryZip));
	
	$zip="$zResult[0]";
	$city="$zResult[1]";
	$stateid = "$zResult[2]";
	
	$qryState = "SELECT state FROM state WHERE state_id = '$stateid'";
	$sResult = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query($qryState));
	$state = "$sResult[0]";

<input type="text" name="state" value=<?php print($state);?> /> i think the problem here is that the " are missing around the value. Try: <input type="text" name="state" value="<?php print($state);?>" />
