Hey everyone,

PHP and MYSQL newbie here.....can really use your help right now. I implemented a Submodal into my script, and finally got it to submit "User Notes" into the database. Unfortunately with each new submission, the text that is submitted overwrites the previous submission. I was told to use CONCAT_WS to prevent that from happening...I have been trying for several hours on Dreamweaver to accomplish that but it's not working. Here is my code for that section...

if ((isset($_POST["MM_update"])) && ($_POST["MM_update"] == "lead_note_form")) {
  $updateSQL = sprintf ("UPDATE Leads SET Notes = CONCAT_WS('\n', Notes, '$Notes') WHERE Id=%s",
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['Notes'], "text"),
                       GetSQLValueString($_POST['Id'], "int"));

Please help, would really appreciate it!!! Thank you!!

try to do without sprintf,

$notes=addslashes($_POST['Notes']);
$updateSQL = "UPDATE Leads SET Notes = CONCAT_WS(Notes,'\r\n', '{$notes}') WHERE Id='{$_POST['Id']}'";

You are awesome! I have been working on it all day and no dice! Still a small problem; this is what the code looks like;

if ((isset($_POST["MM_update"])) && ($_POST["MM_update"] == "lead_note_form")) {
$notes=addslashes($_POST);
$updateSQL = "UPDATE Leads SET Notes = CONCAT_WS(Notes,'\r\n', '{$notes}') WHERE Id='{$_POST}'";

For some reason, this is what gets outputted from my submodal box...testing 12345testing 11214124124124124 (They are saving and outputting on the same line.....)

I updated the code. This code works..my question is, what can I change to not stack each submission on top of each other, and give them some spaces in between one another.

if ((isset($_POST["MM_update"])) && ($_POST["MM_update"] == "lead_note_form")) {
$updateSQL = sprintf ("UPDATE Leads SET Notes = CONCAT_WS('\n', Notes, %s) WHERE Id=%d",
GetSQLValueString($_POST, "text"),
GetSQLValueString($_POST, "int"));

two lines after note and then add current note

CONCAT_WS( Notes,'\r\n\r\n', %s)

then when you display note in html page. you may use
nl2br function to convert new line to html break
<?php
echo nl2br ($note);
?>

It's not working, I am getting this error when I am putting the nl2br function; Notice: Undefined variable: note in /home/content/02/8116402/html/test6.php on line 105

This is the code, I don't see it.....

You are displaing link to note, where and how you display note?

on display page add function nl2br as shown here

<td><textarea rows="15" style="width: 99%" readonly><?php echo nl2br($row_Recordset1['Notes']); ?></textarea></td>

You should also change way you update note, new line must be between old note and new note

CONCAT_WS( Notes,'\r\n\r\n', %s)
