database is called data2, the fields are name and topic

[!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]html file code[!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--]

<form name="form" method="post"
action="add_workin.php">

Name: <input type="text" name="name"><br>
Test: <input type="text" name="topic"><br>

<input type="Submit">
</form>

[!--coloro:#FF0000--][span style=\"color:#FF0000\"][!--/coloro--]php code[!--colorc--][/span][!--/colorc--]

<?php

mysql_pconnect('localhost');
mysql_select_db('test2');

what you mean it only works with number? the database should receive anything you put in the text area
