Try this way

<textarea name="newscontent"  cols="30" rows="10" id="newscontent">

<?php echo $row['newscontent']; ?>


just wondering, what is the purpose of for loop and increment? Is it for speed or for some other reason/s?

whats your update query on the edit-ac.php page, oh as well as your $whatever="whatever" ?
