atleast you need to post ur new.php code


and make sure that database names and table names are matched.


these are the couple of statements ,can help u

// to ge the databases list, check whether spleblem_games3 exist or not

>show databases;

if it is there then

>use spleblem_games3;

to ge the lst of tables in the database

>show tables;

right here is the new.php script

include "../conn.php";
if(!isset($_SESSION['username'])  &&    !isset($_SESSION['password'])){
header("Refresh: 5;url=index.php");  
echo "You are not logon password is required to access this file...";

$sql = "select * from categories order by cName";
$rec=mysql_query($sql,$db) or die(mysql_error());
$datas = mysql_fetch_array($rec);

$cats .= "<option value='$datas[cId]'>$datas[cName]</option>";
}while($datas = mysql_fetch_array($rec));

$displaytxt = "<form method ='post' action='savenewgame.php' enctype='multipart/form-data'>
Category List :
<select name='category'>$cats</select><br>
Game Title : <input type = 'text' name='gametitle' size='30'><br>
