# MySQL 5.1.41 + PBXT engine

# PHP 5.3.1

So I'm getting this error message: 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 8. I can't see where the '", )' code is in that script. I've looked and contrl + find it but no joy. I've looked through the previous pages and mysql database to ensure the variables and the tables match up. Any help would be appreciated. Maybe some good mysql debug advice. Is there a good debug open source program out there? Any help would be appreciated. :'(

<?php   

//let's start our session, so we have access to stored data
session_start();   

include 'db.inc.php';

$db = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', '') or 
    die ('Unable to connect. Check your connection parameters.');
mysql_select_db('ourgallery', $db) or die(mysql_error($db));
   
//let's create the query
$query = sprintf("INSERT INTO subscriptions (
		name, email_address, membership_type,
		terms_and_conditions, name_on_card,
		credit_card_number,	
		credit_card_expiration_data)
	VALUES ('%s','%s','%s','%s','%s','%s','%s')",	
		$_SESSION['email_address'],
		$_SESSION['membership_type'],
		$_SESSION['terms_and_conditions'],
		$_POST['name_on_card'],
		$_POST['credit_card_number'],
		$_POST['credit_card_expiration_data']);
//let's run the query
mysql_query($insert_query);
?>

also turn on error reporting

as your sprintf will fail

you accept 7 parameters and only pass 6

your missing name

//let's create the query
$query = sprintf("INSERT INTO subscriptions (
name, email_address, membership_type,
terms_and_conditions, name_on_card,
credit_card_number,
credit_card_expiration_data)
VALUES ('%s','%s','%s','%s','%s','%s','%s')",
$_SESSION['name'], ///<-----MAYBE ???
$_SESSION['email_address'],
$_SESSION['membership_type'],
$_SESSION['terms_and_conditions'],
$_POST['name_on_card'],
$_POST['credit_card_number'],
$_POST['credit_card_expiration_data']);

PFMaBiSmAd, thanks. I did that and worked out the error by myself :). It turned out that it was exactly what mad techie said (I really did figure it out before I read his post)! It's fixed! I have a multi-page script that inserts information into a database. Watch out facebook! Thanks guys.
