I having problem updating User Records

41 New Member
Hi, everyone I've been trying to figure out a way for a user to update there information. I'm using sections to identify the specific user..Here is the form

include("includ e/session.php");
$username="xxxx xx";
$password="xxxx xxx";
$database="xxxx x";
mysql_connect(l ocalhost,$usern ame,$password);

$query=" SELECT * FROM pix WHERE username='$sess ion->username'";
$result=mysql_q uery($query);
$num=mysql_numr ows($result);

while ($i < $num) {
$whatsit=mysql_ result($result, $i,"whatsit");
$firstname=mysq l_result($resul t,$i,"firstname ");
$lastname=mysql _result($result ,$i,"lastname") ;
$phonenumber=my sql_result($res ult,$i,"phonenu mber");
$address=mysql_ result($result, $i,"address");
$retail=mysql_r esult($result,$ i,"retail");
$city=mysql_res ult($result,$i, "city");
$state=mysql_re sult($result,$i ,"state");
$zip=mysql_resu lt($result,$i," zip");

The form displays the current information the user has stored in the DB. Once the user makes changes this is the PHP SCRIPT that should update the database.

// check to see if the form was posted with the correct id's
if (isset($_POST['_submit']) AND isset($_REQUEST['ud_username']) ) {
$ud_username = intval($_REQUES T['ud_username']);
if ($ud_username < 0) {

# escape data and set variables
$ud_username = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_usernam e"]);
$ud_firstname = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_firstna me"]);
$ud_email = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_email"]);
$ud_lastname = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_lastnam e"]);
$ud_phonenumber = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_phonenumber "]);
$ud_address = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_address "]);
$ud_retail = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_retail"]);
$ud_city = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_city"]);
$ud_state = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_state"]);
$ud_zip = addslashes($_PO ST["ud_zip"]);

$usr = "xxxxxxx";
$pwd = "xxxxx";
$db = "xxxxx";
$host = "xxxx";
// connect to database server
$cid = mysql_connect($ host,$usr,$pwd)
or die("Server connnect ERROR: " . mysql_error());
// select the database
mysql_select_db ($db)
or die("Database select ERROR: " . mysql_error());
$query="UPDATE pix SET firstname='$ud_ firstname', email='$ud_emai l', lastname='$ud_l astname', phonenumber='$u d_phonenumber', address='$ud_ad dress', retail='$ud_ret ail', city='$ud_city' , state='$ud_stat e', zip='$ud_zip' WHERE username= '$ud_username'" ;
mysql_query($qu ery);
echo "Record Updated";

but when clicked nothing happens. The information is not being updated in the database. Could a brotha get a little help on this one!!!! It seems simply so I know I making a small mistake.

Thank You

1. why don't you append the mysql_error() to the UPDATE statement[php]mysql_query($qu ery) or die
"Update error: ".mysql_error() ;[/php] so you know it is / or not an update error

2. when the form is not submitted correctly, i.e. where is the ELSE branch of this statement[php]if (isset($_POST['_submit']) AND isset($_REQUEST['ud_username']) ) {[/php]

3. I cannot find the close brace of the IF statement nor the ELSE of that statement.

In cases 2 and 3 your script ends without action or message.

Ronald :cool:

Hi, If I am updating a list of records for a user on an asp page, is there a way to hold the page updating, even if they refresh the page, until I have updated all the records. i.e. rather than them seeing records change 1 at a time if they refreshed their page, all the records would update together in 1 go, a bit like a batch update ?
