Syntax is wrong

I don't know why but I echoed this and then got the echoed query and put it in the sql of my mysql database and it says

that the syntax isn't right but I looked and I don't see a problem but I am probably over looking something.

 

$query = "INSERT INTO `characters` 
                (charactername, shortname, status_id, style_id, division_id, alignment_id, sortorder, creator_id, datecreated, enabled) 
            VALUES 
                (".$charactername.",".$shortname.",".$status.",".$style.",".$division.",".$alignment.",".$sortorder.", 1, NOW(), 0)";

What you have shown as your $query has no quotes around the fields you are trying to assign.  Assuming that you're not trying to assign all numeric values then you'll need to wrap your VALUE fields in quotes.  (look at the single quotes around $charactername and $shortname. 

 

$query = "INSERT INTO `characters` 
                (charactername, shortname, status_id, style_id, division_id, alignment_id, sortorder, creator_id, datecreated, enabled) 
            VALUES 
                ('".$charactername."','".$shortname."',".$status.",".$style.",".$division.",".$alignment.",".$sortorder.", 1, NOW(), 0)";
