heres the complete error that i am getting.

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 'A (A) )' at line 1

does anyone else get these errors at all?

<?php
$host = "localhost"; //location of the mysql
$name = "michael"; //user name for logging into mysql
$pass = ""; //password for logging into mysql

$TBname = "$_POST[TBname]"; //name of the table for Creation
$DBname = "$_POST[DBname]"; //name of the database for working in
$field = "$_POST[field]"; //name of the field
$type = "$_POST[type]"; //type of field
$length = "$_POST[length]"; //length of field
$prim = "$_POST[primary]"; //is field primary key or not
$incr = "$_POST[auto_increment]"; //is field auto_incrementing

 mysql_connect($host, $name, $pass) or die(mysql_error());
 mysql_select_db($DBname) or die(mysql_error());
 
 $sql = "CREATE TABLE $TBname ("; //creates the table

 for ($count = 0; $count < count($field); $count++)

	}

// clean up the end of the string
