Pass variable Values from one page to another

Recommended Posts

I have learned how to pass values from PHP to  HTML and then back, and now i cannot stop!

Here is what i am trying to do.  I have a Survey form that restaurant owners in West Warwick have to fill out.  My goal is to assign them a userID and allow them to view and update thier survey online once a year.  I have setup the page that passes the USERID to the survey.php page and i generated an HTML page using the variables that are in my sql database for that USERID.  With the help of a couple nice guys from this forum that all went well.....

However, today i would like to include a "UPDATE" button and use form action "POST" to pass the user ID from that HTML page, to the new insert.php page, where users can update thier information.  That will then get passed to a update.php page, where the information will be processed and sent back to the database as updated data.

Perhaps this is far too complicated and there is an easier way to do this.  I am open to new ideas any help will be appreciated... i will post the codes below, hopefully i have been clear enough.


[b]CODES[/b]

Here is the userid.html page, where a user enters his/her userID and it passes to the survey.php page:

[color=red]<form method="post" action="http://epicri.com/survey.php">


<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;</p>
<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
  <label>
  <div align="center"><span class="style1">Please Enter User ID: </span><br />
    <br />
    <input name="userid" type="text" size="10" maxlength="5" />
    <br />
    <br />
    <input type="submit" name="Go" value="Submit" />
  </div>
  </label>
</form>[/color]

This code seems to work fine...

here is the code for the survey.php page, where it then passes the USERID to the update.php page

[color=green]<?php
$hostname = "mysql.epicri.com"; // The Thinkhost DB server.
$username = "epicr001"; // The username you created for this database.
$password = "xxxxx"; // The password you created for the username.
$usertable = "persontab"; // The name of the table you made.
$dbName = "epicr001"; // This is the name of the database you made.
$word = $_POST["userid"]


?>

<?php
$con = mysql_connect($hostname,$username,$password);
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

mysql_select_db($dbName, $con);

$result = mysql_query("SELECT userID, owner, operation, location, permit, streetaddress,email,companyname FROM $usertable
WHERE userid='$word'");

$row = mysql_fetch_array($result);

$owner = $row['owner']


?>

That works great as well

here is the resulting update.php page that gets the userID from survey.php and allows users to populate fields:

[color=blue]<?php

$hiddenid = $_POST['pass']

?>


<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="http://www.epicri.com/insert.php">
  <label>
  text
  <input type="text" name="userid" value="<?=$hiddenid?>" />
  <br />
  <br />
  <br />
  Please enter Owner Name:
  <input type="text" name="owner" />
  </label>
  <p>&nbsp;</p>
  <p>
    <label></label>
  </p>
  <p>
    <label>
    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />
    </label>
  </p>
</form>[/color]

and finally the insert.php page that inserts the values that are passed from the update.php form this is where the problem happens.  I get a parse error at line 17, i will highlight row 17 and where it is used... perhaps i am using a syntax error... or perhaps the way to do this is way too much work.

[color=orange]<?php
$hostname = "mysql.epicri.com"; // The Thinkhost DB server.
$username = "epicr001"; // The username you created for this database.
$password = "xxxxx"; // The password you created for the username.
$usertable = "persontab"; // The name of the table you made.
$dbName = "epicr001"; // This is the name of the database you made.
$owner = $_POST["owner"]
[color=red]$pass = $_POST["pass2"][/color]




?>

<?php
$con = mysql_connect($hostname,$username,$password);
if (!$con)
  {
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
  }

mysql_select_db($dbName, $con);



$result = mysql_query("Update $usertable SET owner = '$owner' WHERE userid = [color=red]'$pass'[/color]");

mysql_close($con)

?>


Thank You
Username <?=$pass?> has been updated![/color]

Any help is appreciated, again i am a newbie, so if this isnt the right way to do this, let me know.

Thanks
Chris

maybe I am missing something myself, but I cannot find where the $_POST['pass2'] is being defined at? More especially what control is named pass2?

when the user has filled all relevent information out this is what i do.

the user press a link say update the link goes to a page with a conndition of cmd=update i use a $_GET[''] to get the condition form the link then update the database with the user information then send them back to the index page or echo a message ok.

link
[code]
echo"<a href='update.php?id=$id&cmd=update'>Update</a>";
[/code]


[code]
<?php

database connection

if($_GET['cmd']=="update"){

$query="update members_information set user_information='$user_information' where id='$id'";

$result=mysql($query);

header("location: index.php");
}
?>
[/code]
