did you try to use quotes around the field value

<input type="text" name="your_text" value="value">


echo "<input type='text' name='field_name' value='$field_value'>";

Subject: [PHP-DB] losing data from a mysql database field

>I'm having an odd occurrence using mysql. If I insert into a varchar field
>with information like "This is the information", it works fine and I can
>retreive and display the data using a normal 'print' or 'echo' statement.
>However, if I try to display the data in a form field (so that I can edit
>data) I only get "This" (ie. I am losing everything after the first
>whitespace character).
>Is there anything that anyone could suggest that would solve this problem?
