Can't add record to db table?

Recommended Posts

[code]
$query = INSERT INTO users (username, first_name, last_name, password, registration_date, phone_num, secretAU, secretQU, secretAP, secretQP, fax_num, email) VALUES ('doni49', 'Don', 'Ireland', PASSWORD('kirsten'), NOW(), '215-932-2391', 'Jennifer', 'What was your first girlfriend\'s name?', 'Deland', 'What is your father\'s middle name?', '508-546-0464', 'don@donireland.com')

$result = @mysql_query ($query); // Run the query.
[/code]

It fails to add the data to the DB. I've confirmed that the script IS logging in. The user has "ALL PRIVILEDGES" to the DB. The "result" variable ends up with NO value.

[code]
echo '<br><br><br>Hi<br>' . $result . 'Bye<br><br><br>';
[/code]

The above shows this:
[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]


Hi
Bye

I THINK it might have something to do with the "Collation" in the user table fields, when I try to remove the collation via phpMyAdmin, it says they were altered. But then when I check the user table structure, the collation is back.

I've attached an image showing the table structure in phpMyAdmin.

Can someone help me track this down?

Try the following (as per LazyJones):

[code]$result = mysql_query($query) or die ("ERROR: ".mysql_error()." with query: $query");[/code]

Maybe you'll get some more info about the problem.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I found it last night. I don't remember removing it, but one of the fields that the posted script was trying to add data to was not there. Therefore it was failing.

The only thing I could find that looked out of the ordinary was that "collation" stuff--Latin Swedish?

Rather than post back here saying "never mind", I figured I'd let the thread die.

Glad you go it working -- btw, latin_swedish is the default character set/collation, at least in MySql 4. It looks funny, but it's fine.
