basic select statement working/not working

Recommended Posts

hello, first post here!


this is a basic select statment that works a million times over but seems not to work now. i wonder if anyone can see any problems with it?


$query = "SELECT link FROM `images` WHERE hotel= $hotel ";

$result = @mysql_query($query);


echo "not selcted";



echo "selcted";



there is defo a column named \'link\' and column named \'hotel\' in a table named \'images\'.


i just put in the if statement for debugging at the mo...


if i cange $hotel to an actual name ie

hotel = \'my hotel\'

it works fine.


i have printed everything to the screen and the variable is defo being passed.


any ideas?


thanks in advance!
