PHP script debugging

Recommended Posts

I tried everything, I am utterly lost a frustrated with this script.

The function of this script is to enter information into a database, and send 2 emails out, there are some required field, if-then statements. Everything was working until I added a second email scripts,

I get a SQL santax error, but I have error reporting on next to everyone SQL script.

"[b]You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '''' at line 1[/b]"

can someone point out my mistake so I can smack myself upside the head

Change this line
[code]<?php mysql_query($sql) or die ( mysql_error() ); ?>[/code]
to
[code]<?php mysql_query($sql) or die ( "Problem with the query: $sql<br>" . mysql_error() ); ?>[/code]
This will show you the query if that's where it's having a problem.

If that's not the problem, please tell us what problem you're having.

[b]Problem with the query: INSERT INTO joborder VALUES (NULL, '', 'test', '', 'dele', 'dele', 'dele', 'dele', '', 'anthony.damasco@accustaffing.com', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', ' ', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', '', 'no one', '', SYSDATE()), ''
