are you getting any errors

I'm afraid that $_POST is ALWAYS empty. You have assigned no value whatsoever for your SELECT Options. The proper syntax is:

<select>
  <option value="a">A</option>
  <option value="b">B</option>
  <option value="c">C</option>
</select>

Here's a list of countries with all values assigned

I think the function you are trying to call is isset not empty

?php
// If the form has been submitted with a supplied keyword
if (isset($_POST)) {

are you getting any errors

i didn't get any errors.
its just that the if else condition it not working..

Did you try what I suggested ?

^oh i forgot, thanks for that

try what MindSter suggest. That should be able to fix your problem.

i've already changed what MindSter suggested..the form data can now be displayed on the display.php page..but am i right with the include () syntax?? as if the only first include() works

i've tried what ApocDen said..the else statement is not working

what could be the right condition for this??.

<?PHP
if (empty($_POST['name']) || empty($_POST['address']) || empty($_POST['telno']) || empty($_POST['country']) || empty($_POST['city']) || empty($_POST['bday']) || empty($_POST['age'])) {
	include("xsuccess.php"); }
else {
	include("success.php"); }
?>

i think there is something wrong with my condition..because on my form

<form action="display.php" method="post"></form>

if i'm not mistaken the form data is sent to display.php so the $_POST will not work on the current page??

So the orginal problem was solved ?
There's nothing wrong with that conditiion ... but you could change the empty($stuff) to $stuff==0 (or NULL).
