Fatal error: Call to undefined function hearder() in C:\xampp\htdocs\projectX\registration1.php on line 42
pls halp me thanks

It's header(), remove the 'r'.

Can I give you some additional advice? You said you are trying to save <person> table to <academic> table as foreign key right?

So why don't you try to normalize the database since the connector is staffId why dont you use left join functions? It will make it short and faster in computation of the database.

header("location: register/academic.php?staffId=$_POST[staffId]");
    echo "the data sent somewhere";
}

COuld be an issue. It may be best to save the staff_id in a session as opposed to making it visible and liable to messing with. ANyway, would the user know his/her staff_id to place it in a form? Or is this placed there from a previous form? Bit confused.

there can be no output to the browser be for the header().
So remove echo statments at line 24 and 38
also move the comment at line 1 inside the <?php tag
