Need help with strange error - Parse error: unexpected $end

Recommended Posts

Thanks for looking - I\'m trying to create a field where people can enter existing records in a database. When the PHP page first loads, they are prompted to enter the number of the record they want to change. When they enter their record, the page reloads and displays the fields of that record in text boxes. The user then has the option of changing the data and clicking the Update button.

 

I can pull up the record fine, but the code that processes the revised information gives me a strange error message:

 

Parse error: parse error, unexpected $end in c:public_htmlupdate.php on line 113

 

Where line 113 is the last line of the page. When I pull out the if (isset($_POST[\'submit\'])): block the code works fine, but with no update when submitted. Does anyone have any ideas what I\'m doing wrong?

<?php



 // Connect to the database server

 $dbcnx = @mysql_connect(\'localhost\');

 if (!$dbcnx) {

   die( \'<p>Unable to connect to the \' .

        \'database server at this time.</p>\' );

 }



 // Select the jokes database

 if (! @mysql_select_db(\'online\') ) {

   die( \'<p>Unable to locate the \' .

        \'database at this time.</p>\' );

 }



?>









<?php



if (isset($_POST[\'submit\'])):



 $dbcnx = mysql_connect(\'localhost\');

 mysql_select_db(\'online\');



$Status = $_POST[\'Status\'];

 $sql = \"UPDATE data SET

Status=\'$Status\' WHERE SessionID=\'$results\'\";

 if (@mysql_query($sql)) {

   echo(\'<p>data added</p>\');

 } else {

   echo(\'<p>Error adding new data: \' .

        mysql_error() . \'</p>\');

 }

$record = $_GET[\"record\"]; 





 echo(\"$record\");

$result = @mysql_query(\"SELECT SessionID, StudentNumber, FirstName, LastName, Email, Status FROM data WHERE SessionID=\'$record\'\");



while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result) ) {

$SessionID=$row[\'SessionID\'];

...maybe because of incorrect use of \'if\' statement?

[php:1:b602e2cd6d]

if(isset($_POST[\'submit\'])):

{

//do something

} else {

//do something else

}

[/php:1:b602e2cd6d]

..is wrong

..but you did use it right the second time which is maybe why that worked..

[php:1:b602e2cd6d]

if (isset($_GET[\'record\'])):

//do something

else: // Allow the user to enter a new author

endif;

[/php:1:b602e2cd6d]

..use the first if statement u mentioned like u did the second
