Try something like this ...

$sql_query = "SELECT newscat_id,newscategory,newscat_status FROM
dvd.news_categories WHERE newscat_id='$newsid' "

 $res = mysql_query( $sql_query) or 
    DIE ("MySQL gave error: " . mysql_errno() . "<br>MySQL Error
String: " . mysql_error()
          . "<br>Query: " . $sql_query);

This should give you a good idea what the error is ..

When ever you are creating new scripts with db queries it is a handy
idea to see what the server is putting our during error conditions.
