How to use content from INCLUDE file within INSERT query statement??

I'm trying to create a INSERT query statement that makes use of the content of 'include' files. When I call up the include it simply echos it to the screen but I can't seem to capture the text string and actually make it function as part of the query. I've tried setting the include as a variable but again it only outputs to the screen. Help please! Here's a portion of the code...

 

if (($_POST['sched_templates']) == "sched_TestingOnly.htm") {

$query = include 'sched_TestingOnlyQuery1.htm';

}

if (@mysql_query ($query)) {

mysql_close(); // End adding Registration to the database

header ('Location: redirectfile.htm');

exit();

} else {

print "<p><b>Sorry, your entry could not be entered.

}

Thank you for the suggestion!!

OK, I tried that ...

 

if (($_POST['sched_templates']) == "sched_TestingOnly.htm") {

  $query = include 'sched_TestingOnlyQuery1.php';

  return $query;

  }

 

however the script ends with an error and displays "Query was emptyThe query was ."

 

Below is the content of the new php file and if I test with just that code it posts perfectly to my table, so all other parts are working OK, it's just capturing and applying into the query statement that it doesn't like to do. Syntax problems?

 

$query = "INSERT INTO sched_boys (game_id, division, level, hometeam, awayteam, field, weekdate, day, time, comment, referee) VALUES ('NULL', '{$_POST['division'][0]}', '{$_POST['level'][0]}', '{$_POST['hometeam'][0]}', '{$_POST['awayteam'][0]}', '{$_POST['field'][0]}', '{$_POST['weekdate'][0]}', '{$_POST['day'][0]}', '{$_POST['time'][0]}', '{$_POST['comment'][0]}', '{$_POST['referee'][0]}' ), ('NULL', '{$_POST['division'][1]}', '{$_POST['level'][1]}', '{$_POST['hometeam'][1]}', '{$_POST['awayteam'][1]}', '{$_POST['field'][1]}', '{$_POST['weekdate'][1]}', '{$_POST['day'][1]}', '{$_POST['time'][1]}', '{$_POST['comment'][1]}', '{$_POST['referee'][1]}' )";

 

Again - thanks so much for any help!

Sorry but I've already messed around with my code too much for it to likely be of any additional help. The code above is the jist of what I'm trying to do.

 

When I use INCLUDE (in my second example above ie. $query = include 'sched_TestingOnlyQuery1.php'; ) it just puts the code from the include file onto the browser screen when I complete my script. Instead what I'm trying to do is APPLY it into the INSERT query statement as a variable so my script can use it to INSERT into my table.

 

I'm baffled why this isn't possible.

As always anyone's help is greatly appreciated!!!

yes, I think I've finally got the right code to return the data from the include file. The content in my include file (sched_TestingOnlyQuery1.php) is as follows:

<? return "INSERT INTO sched_boys (game_id, division, level, hometeam, awayteam, field, weekdate, day, time, comment, referee) VALUES 	('NULL', '{$_POST['division'][0]}', '{$_POST['level'][0]}', '{$_POST['hometeam'][0]}', '{$_POST['awayteam'][0]}', '{$_POST['field'][0]}', '{$_POST['weekdate'][0]}', '{$_POST['day'][0]}', '{$_POST['time'][0]}', '{$_POST['comment'][0]}', '{$_POST['referee'][0]}' ),	('NULL', '{$_POST['division'][1]}', '{$_POST['level'][1]}', '{$_POST['hometeam'][1]}', '{$_POST['awayteam'][1]}', '{$_POST['field'][1]}', '{$_POST['weekdate'][1]}', '{$_POST['day'][1]}', '{$_POST['time'][1]}', '{$_POST['comment'][1]}', '{$_POST['referee'][1]}' )"; ?>

 

Now, as requested, below is my script code:

Note; I've commented out the INSERT query, it is there for testing.

Note: I suspect there may be a problem with the nested "if" statements under the comment "// Check if the form has been submitted."

Thanks.

ob_start();

session_start();

That may be, but I have a bigger problem. When I click the button to POST the submit-AddWeek form it will not even look at the following IF statement that asks it to compare POST 'schedule_template'. It always bypasses it entirely!  And continues to output to the screen only "Query was emptyThe query was ."  - UGH!  See the code below that does NOT print out  "testing".

Is there a rule about not being able to capture an IF statement POST within ANOTHER IF statement POST??  Thanks again!

 

 

// Check if the form has been submitted.

if ( isset ($_POST['submit-AddWeek'])) {

 

if (($_POST['sched_templates']) == 'sched_TestingOnly.htm') {

// $query = include 'sched_TestingOnlyQuery1.php';   

// $query = '$query = ' . '"' . $query . '"'; 

print "testing";

}

 

/*$query = "INSERT INTO sched_boys (game_id, division, level, hometeam, awayteam, field, weekdate, day, time, comment, referee) VALUES ('NULL', '{$_POST['division'][0]}', '{$_POST['level'][0]}', '{$_POST['hometeam'][0]}', '{$_POST['awayteam'][0]}', '{$_POST['field'][0]}', '{$_POST['weekdate'][0]}', '{$_POST['day'][0]}', '{$_POST['time'][0]}', '{$_POST['comment'][0]}', '{$_POST['referee'][0]}' ), ('NULL', '{$_POST['division'][1]}', '{$_POST['level'][1]}', '{$_POST['hometeam'][1]}', '{$_POST['awayteam'][1]}', '{$_POST['field'][1]}', '{$_POST['weekdate'][1]}', '{$_POST['day'][1]}', '{$_POST['time'][1]}', '{$_POST['comment'][1]}', '{$_POST['referee'][1]}' )";*/

 

 

// Execute the query.

if (@mysql_query ($query)) {

mysql_close(); // End adding Registration to the database

header ('Location: CMFSCregistration_reply.htm');

exit();
