change this:

$resultq = mysql_query($queryq) or die("Your email entry already exists..so please register again..");

to this:

$resultq = mysql_query($queryq) or die(mysql_error());

and it will give you a hint to fix it. if you still can't fix it then ask again.

hint: insert into table (column1, column2, etc...) values (value1,volumn2, etc..)

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 :)

hello thks alot for all your help i was able to solve the problem...one last question on registration the code is meant to send an auto email to the registrant and it is not doing that. where have i gone wrong?
$queryq = "insert into registrant values
('$flag','$firstname','$lastname','$dateofbirth','$email','$password','$companyname','$street','$country','$phone','$fax','$area')";
$resultq = mysql_query($queryq) or die("Error with the query. Message: ".mysql_error());
print mysql_error();
$sub="Registration";
$message="You have been registered has an author with id $flag";
mail($email,$sub,$message,'From : admin');

echo ' You have been sign-up successfully ';

probably $email does not hold the value you think it holds.
