I m new to php..I have page in which the user as to enter a number and when clicked on submit the page as to redirect to the entered number in the first form. all the details of that number as to be displayed for updating it. How can I do this?

Here is the code. The first page which takes only the number

<form method="post" action="modify.php">

 <label type="text" name="name" maxlength="50" size="30" class="label">Enter the Membership Number</label><br />

 <input type="text" name='id' placeholder="enter Number which u want to edit" class="input" size="40"/><br />

 <span class="field">(* Required field)</span><br /><br />

 <input type="submit" name="submit" value="SUBMIT" class="button"><br /><br /><br /><br />









 if( ! ctype_alnum($id) )

   die('invalid id');

   $query = "SELECT  FROM `stud` WHERE `id` =$id";

 $run = mysql_query($query);


 echo "<script>window.open('modify.php?id=".$id."','_self')</script>";


 else {

     echo "<script>alert('Membership No is Invalid!')</script>";




 second page is to modify the record
I m getting error in this page as undefined index id in modify.php. Where should i define id. And how should i define id





     $UpdateQuery = "UPDATE stud SET  Student_name='".$_POST['Student_name']."', Father_name='".$_POST['Father_name']."', Mother_name='".$_POST['Mother_name']."', Nationality='".$_POST['Nationality']."', Address1='".$_POST['Address1']."', Address2='".$_POST['Address2']."',email='".$_POST[email]."', DOB='".$_POST['DOB']."', Gender='".$_POST['Gender']."', Percentage='".$_POST['Percentage']."' WHERE Student_name='".$_POST['hidden']."'";              



  $sql = "SELECT * FROM stud where id='".$_GET['id']."'" ;

 $myData = mysql_query($sql);

 echo "<table border=1>







 <th>Address Line 1</th>

 <th>Address Line 2</th>






while($record = mysql_fetch_array($myData)){

 echo "<form action=modify.php method=post>";

 echo "<tr>";

 echo "<td>" . "<input type=text name=Student_name value=" . $record['Student_name'] . " </td>";

  1. Verify if your table named stud has field named ID.
  2. Your form use method POST to transfer data but, in modif.php you get data using $_GET instead $_POST
    change $sql = "SELECT * FROM stud where id='".$_GET['id']."'"

with $sql = "SELECT * FROM stud where id='".$_POST['id']."'"

I get the same error if I use $_POST too Undefined index: id in C:\xampp\htdocs\sch\modify.php on line 20..
