Thanks for looking. I made this PHP page to update information already in my database:

<head> <title> View Client </title> </head> <body> <?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>\');  endif; ?><?php if (isset($_GET[\'record\'])): $record = $_GET["record"]; echo("$record"); echo("<form action=\'$_SERVER[PHP_SELF]\' method=post>"); echo(\'<table border=1 cellpadding=5><TR bgcolor="#e5e5e5"><TD>SessionID</TD><TD>Student Number</TD><TD>First Name</TD><TD>Last Name</TD><TD>Email</TD><TD>Status</TD></TR>\'); $result = @mysql_query("SELECT SessionID, StudentNumber, FirstName, LastName, Email, Status FROM data WHERE SessionID=\'$record\'"); while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result) ) { $SessionID=$row[\'SessionID\']; $StudentNumber=$row[\'StudentNumber\']; $FirstName=$row[\'FirstName\']; $LastName=$row[\'LastName\']; $Email=$row[\'Email\']; $Status=$row[\'Status\']; echo(\'<TR bgcolor="#e5e5e5"><TD>\' .$SessionID . \'</TD><TD><input type=text name=StudentNumber value=\' .$StudentNumber . \'></TD><TD><input type=text name=FirstName value=\' .$FirstName . \'></TD><TD><input type=text name=LastName value=\' .$LastName . \'></TD><TD><input type=text name=Email value=\' .$Email . \'></TD><TD><input type=text name=Status value=\' .$Status . \'></TD></TR>\'); } echo(\'<input type=submit name=submit value=submit></form>\'); ?> <?php else: // Allow the user to enter a new author ?> <form action="<?=$_SERVER[\'PHP_SELF\']?>" method="get"> <p>Look up a client (using session ID #):<br /> Email: <input type="text" name="record" size="20" maxlength="255" /><br /> <input type="submit" value="lookup"></p> </form> <?php endif; ?> </body> </html>

And the form seems to work properly, and tells me the data has been added. However, when I check the database, the new information hasn\'t been updated. What am I doing wrong?

remove the error supression (@) in front of the myslq_query and see if mysql spits up some kind of an error message.
