I have a table that I am trying to update using the following query and are getting a syntax error with the following code:
mysql_query("UPDATE posts_members SET post='$replaced', previousposts='$postprevious',edited='$edited' WHERE id='$postid'")
or die(mysql_error());

Here is the error: [!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 've shot everything in sight, captured control points in amazingly blisteringly f' at line 1[/quote]

I believe the error is occuring because of a ' but cannot see why because slashes have been added before the ' symbols!

Thanks a $million

so what is the output of..

echo("post='$replaced' <Br>");
echo("previousposts='$postprevious'");
echo("edited='$edited'");
echo("WHERE id='$postid'");


This should return for definate wether slashes have been added or not as to me it looks like they havn't..

I'm so stupid:)

I forgot to add slashes to one of the variables!

Thanks shocker-z!
