//check certification
$certification = $HTTP_POST_VARS;
if($certification != "accept")
{        echo(" Your application has been terminated as a result of uncertified information!");?> </font></div>

<? end;
//post time
$date_posted = date ("l, jS of , Y h:i:s A");

// pass session vars into simple vars
//personal data
$firstname = $HTTP_SESSION_VARS;
$middlename = $HTTP_SESSION_VARS;
$surname = $HTTP_SESSION_VARS;
$priornames = $HTTP_SESSION_VARS;
$reasons = $HTTP_SESSION_VARS;

Hi bluetoot,

You are missing some comma's seperating your SET variables.
birthplace = '$birthplace',
for example.

Also, please use the CODE tags when posting code, it makes it much easier to read.

Hope this helps.
