hmm.. well your code looks fine. so when you click submit and in the new page if you try to echo $types or $_POST['types'] you get nothing?

also, you are populating your dropdown with type_name but you are passing types_id with it, is this really what you are trying to do?

example: dropdown box might show Betty, Sue, George but you are actually passing 23, 19, 56 not Betty, Sue or George

if so, is types_id a valid column name in your db?
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
