Hi I am getting this warning and I don't know why?!! :sad: :!:

please can you help me to find the error

Edited 3 Years Ago by Dani: Formatting fixed

Your query is probably failing. Try

$run = mysql_query($squery) or die(mysql_error());

And see if you get an error.

Or echo out your SQL statment and trying running it against the database.

I tried

$run = mysql_query($squery) or die(mysql_error());

I got this message "Query was empty"

Wat does this mean?

$pquery = "select busNo from $table1 where place like '".$SearchType."'";
$squery = "select * from $table2 where busNo like '".$pquery."'";

If $_POST was given as "Foobar" (for want of a better example), $squery would be set to:

select * from STUDENT where busNo like 'select busNo from BUS where place like 'Foobar''

Try running that by itself :-|
