Just after a quick look through your page code, I can't see any inputs for fname or lname, which will cause those POST variables to fail.

Are you getting any specific error messages from PHP?

Hi Hearth!

its because the fname and lname are being fetched from my DB. kindly see line 25 and 57. Also there are no errors. the page just refreshes

fname and lname are being fetched from my DB

Thats fine, I can see that. But at line 19-20 in the save code you are still trying to access them from the POST variable

$value1 = $_POST["lname"];
$value2 = $_POST["fname"];

You will need to either fetch the employee record again at this point, or include this data in the form post (perhaps in hidden fields).

The other thing to check is that your form is definitely submitting to the correct address since you are using a separate file for processing. (Not that I can see anything wrong, but we can't see your file system structure here)

Try putting them in hidden fields

<input type="hidden" name="lname" value="<?php echo $row['lname'] ?>" />

It doesn't really matter so long as it's inside your form tags, but for ease of reading I'd put it just below where you are displaying the name at line 57.

(Don't forget that you will need to do the same type of hidden input for fname as well).
