Are you sure short tags are enabled on your server? Try calling echo () from inside the block. If it doesn't work then you should chnage "<?" to "<?php"

the problem is you are not telling the query what columns to put the values in try something like this


$query="INSERT INTO producers(your_first_column_name,your_second_column_name,your_third_column_name,your_fourth_column_name,your_fifth_column_name,your_sixth_column_name, your_seventh_column_name,your_eightth_column_name,your_ninth_column_name)VALUES ('','$first','$last','$dob','$city','$country','$email','$donation','$proNum')";
just change all of the your_first_column_names to the real column names like(first,last,dob,and so on)and that should fix your problem and where it says &#40 it is supposed to be ( it changsd when i posted it and wont let me fix it

Put an "or die" clause on your mysql_query() function:
$query = "INSERT INTO producers VALUES ('','$first','$last','$dob','$city','$country','$email','$donation','$proNum'";
mysql_query($query) or die('Problem with query:<span style="color:red>' . $query . '</span><br>' . mysql_error());
