I am a bit of a newbie to PHP and have produced a dynamic form for a uni project, however, I am unsure how to code the PHP script which will insert the data inputted through the form into a SQL database.

The code for the form can be seen below and it can be seen graphically in the file attached: -

<form name="count" method="post" action="../php/addshopfloorcount.php">
          <table id="count" width="80%" border="1" class="table_text">
			  <tr>
			    <td colspan="4" class="table_text">Count Information:</td>
			  </tr>
			  <tr>
			    <td width="20%" align="center" >Count ID</td>
			    <td width="40%" align="center" >Department</td>
			    <td width="40%" align="center" >Username</td>
			  </tr>
		  <tr>
		    <td colspan="-3" align="center"><input name="id" type="text" id="id" size="10" maxlength="10" /></td>
		    <td align="center"><select name="department" id="department">
              <option value="--- Select Department ---">--- Select Department ---</option>
              <?
					// Get records from database (table "name_list").
					$list=mysql_query("select * from department order by id asc");
		
					// Show records by while loop.
					while($row_list=mysql_fetch_assoc($list)){
				  ?>
              <option value="<? echo $row_list['id']; ?>" <? if($row_list['id']==$select){ echo "selected"; } ?>><? echo $row_list['department']; ?> </option>
              <?
					// End while loop.
					}
				  ?>
            </select>            </td>
		    <td align="center"><select name="username" id="username">
              <option value="--- Select Username ---">--- Select Username ---</option>
              <?
					// Get records from database (table "name_list").
					$list=mysql_query("select * from members order by id asc");
		
					// Show records by while loop.

				  ?>
              <option value="<? echo $row_list['id']; ?>" <? if($row_list['id']==$select){ echo "selected"; } ?>><? echo $row_list['username']; ?> </option>
              <?

You need a form handler page (I assume this is addshopfloorcount.php - but it shouldn't be the same page as your form) which will receive the form data. The data will be in the superglobal $_POST variable.

Example:

$field1 = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['field1']); //etc for each field passed

$q = mysql_query("INSERT INTO mytable SET myfield1 = '$field1',myfield2 = '$field2' ...");

As this is uni work, I think I'll leave it at that.
