Hello. I have text fields with data that is not being inserted into my table 'Election'.

The Election table has these fields: ID (primary key and auto-increment), title, open_datetime, close_datetime, department, adminID, active (default is 'N')

I checked to make sure all the field names are the same. Everything works fine but nothing is showing up in my database!

Here is my code: See if you can find the culprit:

<?
session_start();
if(!isset($_SESSION['user_admin'])) {
header("Location: index.php");
exit();
}

include '../dbc.php';

/**establish connection*/
connect();

if($_POST['doSubmit'] == 'Create')
{
  

/**Checking if any of the fields are date fields are blank*/
/****************************************Sets session variables *****************************************************/
  $adminID = $_SESSION['user_admin']; //extracts admin from the session to associate the election with the admin creating it
  $title = $_POST['title'];
  $department = $_POST['department'];
  $open_year = $_POST['open_year'];
  $open_month = $_POST['open_month'];
  $open_day = $_POST['open_day'];
  $open_hour = $_POST['open_hour'];
  $open_minutes = $_POST['open_minutes'];
  $open_AM_PM = $_POST['open_AM_PM'];
  $open_datetime = $open_year . "-" . $open_month . "-" . $open_day . " " . $open_hour . ":" . $open_minutes . ":00"; 
  $close_datetime = $close_year . "-" . $close_month . "-" . $close_day . " " . $close_hour . ":" . $close_minutes . ":00"; 

      function isValidDateTime($dateTime)
{
    if (preg_match("/^(\d{4})-(\d{2})-(\d{2}) ([01][0-9]|2[0-3]):([0-5][0-9]):([0-5][0-9])$/", $dateTime, $matches)) {
        if (checkdate($matches[2], $matches[3], $matches[1])) {
            return true;
        }
    }

    return false;
}//end of isValidDateTime() 


  function checkFields($title, $department)
{
            
    if(($title||$department)== "")
	{
	$msg = urlencode("Fields must not be blank. Please fill in all required fields. ");
	header("Location:newuser.php?msg=$msg");
	exit();

	}
	else
		return;	

}//end of checkFields() 

function checkopenAMPM($open_AM_PM){
//takes the PM and AM and convert the hours into XX format

if($open_AM_PM == "PM")
    {
      if ($open_hour= "12") 
	$open_hour = $open_hour + 12; 
      	return $open_hour;
    }
if($open_AM_PM == "AM")
    {
      if($open_hour == "12")
	$open_hour = 0;
	return $open_hour;
    }
}

function checkcloseAMPM($close_AM_PM)
{
if($close_AM_PM == "PM")
    {
      if ($close_hour= "12") 
	$close_hour = $close_hour + 12; 
      return $close_hour;
    }
if($close_AM_PM == "AM")
    {
      if($close_hour == "12")
	$close_hour = 0;
	return $close_hour;
    }
} //end of checkcloseAMPM

checkcloseAMPM($close_AM_PM);
checkopenAMPM($open_AM_PM); 
 
  if(((isValidDateTime($open_datetime))||(isValidDateTime($close_datetime)))== false){

	$date_msg = urlencode("ERROR: Date is invalid.");
	header("Location: newuser.php?msg=$date_msg");
	exit();
 	 }

checkFields($title, $department);  //check fields to see if they are blank. If any are blank, so error message.

  mysql_query("INSERT INTO Election (title, department, open_datetime, close_datetime, adminID, active)
                         VALUES('$title','$department','$open_datetime', '$close_datetime','$adminID', 'N')" or die(mysql_error()));

echo "User created....done";
