Data not showing up in database but can be extracted as usual

hey guys,

I have a little problem that been haunting me for the past two days.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. //Get data from form
  2. $Client1=$_POST['Client'];
  3. $Number1=$_POST['Number'];
  4. $Issue1=$_POST['Issue'];
  5. $Status1=$_POST['Status'];
  6. $Charge1=$_POST['Charge'];
  7. $Parts1=$_POST['Parts'];
  8.  
  9. //Insert new data into inprogress
  10.  
  11. mysql_query("INSERT INTO new (Client,Number,Job,Status,Charge,Expense)VALUES('$Client1','$Number1','$Issue1','$Status1','$Charge1','$Parts1')");
  12.  
  13. mysql_close();
  14.  
  15.  
When I print out the data in the form it prints out the correct data, but when I check the database, there's no information, but it does insert a new entry. What gives? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That is strange and we can't really help (this isn't a PHP issue, either). Are you sure you're looking at the right database? ;)

Yes, of course. I've did this multiple times so I'm not new to it so that's why it's surprising me. It goes in, but no data. I print it out on the page and the data is there. I don't get it.

PS Thank you for changing the name of the thread.

Well if you can retrieve the data from the database correctly, then it is being inserted and there is nothing wrong with your code. Again, what database are you using?

Also, if I insert through mySQLAdmin everything gets printed out correctly, so it can't be that I'm using the wrong database.

Hey.

A few comments on your insert code.
  1. The type attribute of a input element can only be one of: text, password, checkbox, radio, submit, reset, file, hidden, image or button. (This is not the MySQL data type.) - Not sure how the browsers handle this -- they may default to text for invalid values -- but you should not depend on that. They may just as well ignore the field altogether.
  2. The part of the code that inserts the new data into the database is executed regardless of whether or not there is actually any data. As such, it will ALWAYS be executed, even the first time the form is shown, where it will just insert an empty row. - You need to check to see if there is actually any data to insert before you try to insert it.
  3. You are ignoring the return value of the mysql_query() calls, so even if the query fails, you wouldn't know about it. - You should always capture the return value and dump or log the error. mysql_query($sq l) or die(mysql_error ());, for example.
  4. Your INSERT query is wide open to SQL Injection. Always run data through the mysql_real_esca pe_string function before putting it into a MySQL query.
  5. The SELECT query on line #12 has an error. You are missing the FROM clause.
  6. You connect to the same database twice, once for the select and once for the INSERT. (Once is enough.)
  7. Avoid using <? ... ?> style code blocks. They are disabled by default. The <?php ... ?> style blocks always work.

Thank you all for the responses. I figured out what it was. Turns out that php doesn't like " ' ". That's weird, I never had that.
