issue with php edit page


Recommended Posts


I am trying to populate a form ready to update the data and have managed to get the id number displaying in the input field but for every other input field, it displays the following

<br /><b>Notice</b>: Undefined index: customer_name in <b>/home/sites/it-doneright.co.uk/public_html/admin/repairs-tracking/edit-repair-tracking.php</b> on line <b>40</b><br />

I really don't get it or see where I am going wrong with it, below is the whole code on the edit-repair-tracking.php page

<form action="update-admin-repair-tracking.php" method="post">
Repair ID: <input value="<?= $_GET['id'] ?>" name="id"/>
Customer Name: <input type="text" name="customer_name" value="<?= $_GET['customer_name'] ?>">
Customer Email: <input type="text" name="customer_email" value="<?= $_GET['customer_email'] ?>">
Customer Phone: <input type="text" name="customer_phone" value="<?= $_GET['customer_phone'] ?>">
Computer Make: <input type="text" name="computer_make" value="<?= $_GET['computer_make'] ?>">
Computer Model: <input type="text" name="computer_model" value="<?= $_GET['computer_model'] ?>">
<select name="technician" id="technician">
<option value="Not Assigned">Not Assigned</option>
<option value="Phil Roskams">Phil Roskams</option>
<option value="Ian Haney">Ian Haney</option>

<select name="status" id="status">
<option value="Not Started">Not Started</option>
<option value="In Queue">In Queue</option>
<option value="On Bench / Working">On Bench / Working</option>
<option value="Awaiting Parts">Awaiting Parts</option>
<option value="Awaiting Customer">Awaiting Customer</option>
<option value="Completed">Completed</option>

Expected Repair Date: <input type="date" name="exrdate" value="<?= $_GET['exrdate'] ?>">

Expected Repair Time: <input type="time" name="exrtime" value="<?= $_GET['exrtime'] ?>">

Expected Start Date<input type="date" name="exstdate" value="<?= $_GET['exstdate'] ?>">

Expected Start Time: <input type="time" name="exstime" value="<?= $_GET['exstime'] ?>">

Delivery Type:
<select name="deltype" id="deltype">
<option value="Self Pickup">Self Pickup</option>
<option value="Deliver to Customer">Delivery to Customer</option>

<textarea name="comments" cols="50" rows="3" id="comments"><?= $_GET['comments'] ?></textarea>

<input type="submit" name="submit">


Can someone help me please as been trying to work out what I am missing for a good hour now

would the issue be with this page or the view tracking php page where the records are displayed?

Hi Ian,


Try var_dump($_GET) at the top of this page and you will see what GET contains.

It looks like the variables aren't being passed from the page that calls this page.


GET may not be the best way to pass all the variables to another page, if this data is coming from the database, it might be better to use that.


Hope that helps,

Below is the view page that calls the edit page

        $host = '';
        $user = '';
        $password = '';
        $dname = '';

        $db = new mysqli($host, $user, $password, $dname);

        if ($db->connect_errno) {
            echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: ("
            . $db->connect_errno . ") " . $db->connect_error;

        $sql = "SELECT id, customer_name, customer_email, customer_phone, computer_make, computer_model, technician, status, exrdate, exrtime, exstdate, exstime, deltype, comments FROM repairs";
        $result_db = $db->query($sql) or die('Error perform query!');

<table border="1">
                <th>Repair ID</th>
                <th>Customer Name</th>
                <th>Customer Email</th>
                <th>Customer Phone</th>
                <th>Computer Make</th>

                <th>Expected Repair Time</th>

                <th>Expected Start Time</th>
                <th>Delivery Type</th>
            while ($r = $result_db->fetch_object()) {
                $update = "admin/repairs-tracking/edit-repair-tracking.php?id={$r->id}";
                echo '<tr>';
                echo '<td>' . $r->id . '</td>';
                echo '<td>' . $r->customer_name . '</td>';

                echo "<td><a href='/{$update}'>Update</a></td>";
                echo '</tr>';
