hey so im trying to save data but i get error:

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE event_id = '8'' at line 1

this being the line:
$sql = mysql_query("INSERT INTO event(guest_num) VALUES('$total') WHERE event_id = '".$event_id."' ") or die(mysql_error());

php:

if(isset($_POST['save']) && isset($_POST['check']) )
{
    foreach($_POST['check'] as $insert_id)
    {
        require "connection.php";
        $total = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['ttlg']);
        $event_id = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['event']);
        $sql = mysql_query("INSERT INTO event(guest_num) VALUES('$total') WHERE event_id = '".$event_id."' ") or die(mysql_error());
        $name1 = mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['gname']);
        $insert_id = (int)$insert_id;
        $guest = mysql_query("INSERT INTO guest VALUES('$insert_id','$name1','".$event_id."','')") or die(mysql_error());
    }
}

html:

It is complaining because you have a 'where' clause at the end of an insert statement.

You will want to change it to INSERT INTO event(guest_num) VALUES('$total'). You would only need a where clause if you were trying to update or select (pretty much where you need to check existing data before performing the operation).
