When you call mysql_query is it perhaps from inside a function, where 
variable $var has not been passed or made global?

(BTW, whenever you experience problems with a query, it's a good idea to 
echo the query string to the browser.  Often, this simple step makes it 
very clear where the problem lies.  Using mysql_error() and $php_errormsg 
on a query failure also can give you very useful information.)
