to this

$sql="insert into vote(name)values('$username')";

thanks for the quick response mathieu89

i'm appreciate it

ok...i have change it like this as you tell me

$sql="insert into vote(name)values('$username')";


but..when i check my database ... the name i have been chosen didn't insert. they insert "root" without quote. in my database name testing and my table name vote( only have id and name) for id i have set auto_increment.

Well in that case it could be that your $username variable is the same as the mysql connection variable $username. I guess its inserting your database username root???

maybe make your form variable something other than $username

First of all, use CODE to post your code. I can't tell which line u got errors.
As much as i can read, $row came out from nowhere in select.php (first is $rw). then in save.php, '$name' should be '$UserName'. I think php is case-sensitive.

if ($rs)
{
while ($rw = mysql_fetch_object($rs))
{
$UserName=$rw->UserName;
?>
<option value="<? echo $UserName; ?>"<?php if(!empty($row['option']) and ($row['option'] == "$UserName")) { echo(" selected=\"selected\""); }?>><? echo $UserName; ?> </option>
<?
}

}

?>

For this one u can use echo simply like this.

if ($rs)
{
while ($rw = mysql_fetch_object($rs))
{
$UserName=$rw->UserName;

 echo "<option value='$UserName'";
 if(!empty($rw['option']) and ($rw['option'] == "$UserName"))
 { 
 echo "selected='selected'";
 }
echo ">";
echo "$UserName;</option>";
}

}

I'm not saying that u'r wrong but too complex and hard to read. (mean hidding place for errors if any)
