  1. mysql_query("UPDATE 'grades' SET '$class' = '$grade' WHERE student='$student'");
  2. mysql_query("UPDATE 'assignments' SET '$class' = '$grade' WHERE student='$student'");
  3. mysql_query("UPDATE 'comments' SET '$class' = '$grade' WHERE student='$student'");
now i was just showed by ron how to recive post stuff and that is where the variables come from so i am not even sure if i am getting the variables from the other page. i did try to display all of those variables but with my php skills the echo options might have their own problems so here is the rest of the code
