mysql syntax error - help!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

This is my first post here and I was hoping that I could find an answer to this problem I am having. I inherited a database and website from a previous programmer who isn't available for questions, and boy am I stuck.

 

The php code is simply grabbing info from a database and outputting to form fields. Most of the data exports fine, but on a couple only half of the form fields are even created and I see the following output at the top of the screen:

 

"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 1"

 

I compared the data causing this error with the data that displays correctly upon request and the database entry is identical. Has anybody else seen this error before? It gives me line 1 as the culprit but I don't see any problems with this line, which is <?php require_once('/includes/db/toolIPO.php'); ?>

 

What kills me is that only a couple records act this way when requested and the rest are fine. Any ideas?

it means line 1 of MYSQL, not line 1 of PHP... it's a mysql error. print the query out to see what you're missing.

Thanks for that idea. I printed it out and now know that i'm missing a variable being passed. Now at least I have an idea of how to start fixing the problem :)

 

Thanks,

Nathan
