<?php require_once('../Connections/activity.php'); ?>
<?php
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
{
$theValue = (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? addslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
break;
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . doubleval($theValue) . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
break;
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
break;
}
return $theValue;
}

$editFormAction = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'];
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$editFormAction .= "?" . htmlentities($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']);
}

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "form1")) {
$insertSQL = sprintf("INSERT INTO temp_class (temp_name) VALUES (%s)",
GetSQLValueString($_POST['temp_name'], "text"));

mysql_select_db($database_activity, $activity);
$Result1 = mysql_query($insertSQL, $activity) or die(mysql_error());

$insertGoTo = "untitled.php";
if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
$insertGoTo .= (strpos($insertGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
$insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
}
header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));
}

mysql_select_db($database_activity, $activity);
$query_rand_pick = "SELECT student.name FROM student ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 15";
$rand_pick = mysql_query($query_rand_pick, $activity) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rand_pick = mysql_fetch_assoc($rand_pick);
$totalRows_rand_pick = mysql_num_rows($rand_pick);
?>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td>name</td>

<?php do { ?>
<tr>
<td><?php echo $row_rand_pick['name']; ?></td>
</tr>
<?php } while ($row_rand_pick = mysql_fetch_assoc($rand_pick)); ?>
</table>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>

<form method="post" name="form1" action="<?php echo $editFormAction; ?>">

<?php
mysql_free_result($rand_pick);

[/quote]
[code]
INSERT INTO temp_class (
   SELECT *
   FROM student
   ORDER BY RAND()
   LIMIT 15
)
[/code]

Also, in that code you posted, you cant use strings in a switch() statement.
