I need help with a form I created, I'm having trouble storing information from the form in a mysql database, the field that seems to be updating is the auto_increment the rest of the fields you just gives me blank, I just started using php/mysql 5 days ago, I have tried several options none seem to work

I'll apreciate all the help I can get, here is the form and script

<form action="page2.php" name="forward" method="post">
Name:<input type="text" name="name" value=<? echo $name; ?>">
Address:<input type="text" name="address" value=<? echo $name; ?>">
Career:<input type="text" name="career" value <? echo $career; ?>">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit">



$sql="insert into table1";
$sql .="(num,name,address,career)";
$sql .="values('','$name', '$address', '$career')";

try not using num and '' it may work, else the autonumber isnt a primary key which can cause a problem
ok, so my PHP is a bit rusty... my replies are 90% ok.
the other 10% either have syntax errors or are the "hard solution"
