varcar for password,probelm with mixed alpha or numeric

I have a field called pword, whenever someone enters anything but numeric,
i.e. mixed alpha with numeric, or even just alpha.. the following error
appears.

Warning: mysql_numrows(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result
resource
What do I need to change the field to, to be able to have whatever password
configuration the user wants to enter?

TIA,

I figured it out.. put single quotes around my where statement in calling
this field and it now will accept alpha,
numeric or mixed. before I just had the $pword instead of '$pword'

I just thought I would share, I didn't think that would make a difference,
but it sure did.

Never ignore the return value of mysql_query; if there's an error, it returns
false, and the reason for the error is available in mysql_error().

For debugging use something like:

$result = mysql_query($query)
or die ("Query failed:<br>$query<br>Error: " . mysql_error());

This will show you the error, which query caused it, and prevent your script
carrying on past a failed query and getting into even worse trouble with
undefined variables and resource handles (as above).
