Porblem with SQL statement in my php.

Hello (Again)

I am trying to insert recordes into two tables with the following code. But
field UserId in table tOrders
and
field OrderID in table tOrderItem
are not updating only the default value 0 is being saved into the records. I
have been pondering this one all day. I expect as I am new to php I am
missing something obvious but I cannot see it. All the other fields are
being created OK and the $_SESSION[username] is OK as it can be echoed on
the page. I suspect it must be something to do with the variables in the SQL
statements.

*************** *************** *************** *************** **********
<?php

session_start() ;
include('iddsof 2.php');
include("login. php");
$OrderDate = date('d/m/Y');
echo $_SESSION[username];

$UserID = mysql_query("SE LECT id FROM users WHERE username
='".$_SESSION[username]."'");
$OrderID = mysql_query("SE LECT OrderID FROM tOrders WHERE UserID =
'$UserID'");

$insertOrder = "INSERT INTO tOrders (UserId,OrderDa te,OrderCost) VALUES
('$id','$OrderD ate',10)";
$add_order = @mysql_query($i nsertOrder) or die('Query failed: ' .
mysql_error());
$insertOrderDet ails = "INSERT INTO tOrderItem (OrderID,Questi onNo) VALUES
('$OrderID',10) ";
$add_order_deta ils = @mysql_query($i nsertOrderDetai ls) or die('Query failed:
' . mysql_error());

?>

The return value of mysql_query() is *NOT* a value of what you
selected. It's a result set. Fetch a row (you might have gotten
more than one row) from the result set (e.g. with $r =
mysql_fetch_arr ay($OrderID).) Then look for the column (e.g.
$r['OrderID'] you asked for, and THAT'S the value you want to put
in the query.

Also, when you're debugging something, don't put @ in front of
function calls. Also, print out the SQL being passed to mysql_query.

You never set $id (unless it's hidden in your includes).
All the other fields are
being created OK and the $_SESSION[username] is OK as it can be echoed on
the page. I suspect it must be something to do with the variables in the SQL
statements.
